I have been working at Wastequip full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Love working in the industry, and with our customers and follow employees. Pay/benefits above average for most jobs compared to competitors, and other similar sized companies. Freedom of ideas is encouraged.

Cons

The biggest challenge has been long-term employee culture poison (reluctance to change), and multiple private equity ownership about every few years (change in management philosophy).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Initiate a reward program for exceptional and beyond-the-call of duty work efforts by all employees. Also wish that there were a way to keep current ownership in place so we could really see what Wastequip could accomplish in the industry with longer term ownership.

    Pros

    Very competitive and always striving to be the best. Very smart and hardworking people involved in the company, pretty much everyone pulls their weight. Pay and benefits are on par with industry. Definite desire to improve and grow.

    Cons

    Middle management is mostly incompetent with a few shining stars. From my vantage point non one in middle management was ever held accountable for anything. Many of them are more interested in looking busy than in being productive. You will be asked to perform meaningless tasks so that the manager can cover their behind with their boss. Company is trying to embrace big data approach for the benefit of private equity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider getting rid of some of middle managers. Work directly with the employees and save yourself some money and get better information. They do not do anything that adds to your bottom line.

    I have been working at Wastequip full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great CEO
    - Great Benefits/Company Perks
    - Exceptional Salaries/Bonuses
    - Great career development opportunities
    - Flexible work schedules
    - Diminishing bureaucracy... CEO is working very hard to build a "down to earth" coprorate culture.

    Cons

    - Legacy employees resistant to change – This significantly slows the adoption of new standards & technology at the divisional levels.
    - Extremely Understaffed – need to hire more professional-level employees to help balance workloads across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES!!! Understand the dynamic of your workforce and be humble enough to take educated suggestions from those who are actually doing the work.
