    Pros

    Great corporate culture, great outreach and connectivity to the field. Growing company with good vision from senior leadership. Always busy, but the company is very much employee and customer focused

    Cons

    As a waste disposal industry there is a lot to learn if you are new to the business. Best practice is do steady research to learn and talk to as many experienced people as possible.
