    I worked at Waste Management

    Pros

    Pay is good and the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Good old white boy network that will never promote any minority. They work you to death and still don't appreciate what you do. Decentilized business that lets the areas dictate what corporate should do. They reorganize every 2-3 years and you never know when the axe will fall. Stress is off the charts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify and get rid of some of the old horses in the areas. The company will never change if the leadership changes.
