Started off making great money but in one year commission pay was cut twice.

I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Paid weekly, good money in general. Base plus commission. Huge company that is well known and respected. Management is fair and doesn't play favorites which is refreshing.

Cons

They have cut our commission pay once and then changed the terms of how we meet our goals once so now it's hard to max out on commission even though the job is the same. Also only 10 days of vacation first year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share the wealth. This is a billion dollar company, stop taking money out of the employees pockets while the upper management gets huge bonuses.

    Pros

    Decent company with good initiatives with Waste, Recycling and sustainability.

    Cons

    So many politics and everything is about penny pinching that you can see departments falling apart. What you put in you get out and management was always on a tight leash. When I first started there was company xmas parties, and things of that nature...then there was nothing. No company moral. They laid off so many people with years of experience it was awful.

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a large company with many disciplines (transportation, logistics, sales, IT) in which someone can develop their career.

    Cons

    Frequent, and periodically large, reorgs are highly disruptive and set projects back while good folks end up elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who have worked at WM for a long time are highly loyal, but that loyalty is constantly challenged by changing priorities and layoffs.
