    Pros

    Hard working co-workers that care about their work and environment. Decent benefits for workers & families. Alot of personal freedom to get work completed.

    Cons

    Poor equipment & site maintenance causing more interruptions. Constantly trying to "save" money by not performing work. General attitude from front line emplyees is not positive due to continuosly being asked to do more with less. Very compartmentalized institution & goals are not aligned with the success of the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pressuring the front lines constantly. You have honest, hard working individuals that have not been rewarded for thier commitments for many years now.

    Pros

    Waste is a Fortune 200 company that has potential to be great. The company pays very well and has great benefits. Waste Management is huge and there are opportunities to build a career.

    Cons

    The culture at Waste is very toxic and negative. The company doesn't value employees or customers. There are no training programs for supervisors or managers, leaders do not communicate with employees, departments do not interact with one another & customers suffer because of it. Nepotism is the norm. Every year the company has a hiring freeze/layoff period around August, regardless of the financial health of the company. Managers & executive leaders use intimidation to control their employees. I've worked for great organizations throughout my career, & Waste is by far the worst. It's truly sad because the company has the potential to be great if they would stop treating their employees & customers like trash. No pun intended.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training programs to develop leaders & employee engagement programs. Every year you layoff employees and then rehire for the same positions. That's wasteful spending! It's more cost effective to retain current employees than to hire new employees. Listen to your customers; they are telling you that the service they receive from WM does not match the high prices they pay. If you want to be the high end service provider, you need to provide high quality service.
