    I have been working at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    There is advancement opportunity generally if you are willing to relocate, great benefits, never a lack of something to do...very strong workload. Insurance was good coverage, good employee stock purchase program and 401K.

    Cons

    Getting things accomplished was sometimes difficult due to internal strife/bureacracy...management was rarely willing to "put their neck out" for an idea to be pushed through the system. Overall lack of direction from management as well.

    I worked at Waste Management

    Pros

    The people were friendly and the work was very consistent once you get into a routine.

    Cons

    However, the position was very mundane and it should have been automated by this point. The management did not together very well. The pay was satisfactory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Automate everything and work with your drivers more
