    Pros

    I worked at two different locations, the first place I worked at had great training, the second not so much.

    Cons

    Beyond just not enough training, I found that some management played favorites. Not a lot of opportunity to grow unless you were buddy-buddy with someone higher up.

    I worked at Casella Waste Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Feels family owned/run even though it's a public company. Great co-workers

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management sometimes leads to confusion and anxiety. I didn't hear or see a clear strategy for the future. Seems like they are constantly trying to figure out what to do next

    Advice to Management

    Welcome young fresh ideas in to the company! Take stock of the good people you have and do everything you can to keep them and reward them.

    Pros

    Clean work space, ability to decorate as desired within reason.

    Cons

    Unclear growth expectation, workload, outdated software, high call volume expected, management misleading in expectations. Unclear dress code.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more clear about job expectations and growth, and don't approve time off if it will be used against the employee even though it was approved.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Consistent paychecks, just show up and they will love you.

    Cons

    High turnover for laborers and many absences, poor management-not knowing how nor having the ability to drive Class A or B, scheduling changes often, below industry wages

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to staff, hire management with licenses to back up absences and know about jobs, learn routes, plan, learn efficiency, split routes evenly, pay base on productivity not on hours- you are rewarding people for subpar efforts.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are absolutely NO Pro's to working for this company! Never seen a place with such a high turn-over rate and poor management (Senior Regional managers all the way down)!

    Cons

    They don't care about worker safety, hazards, or laws. They ignore pollution and turn their heads or hide it. Management is absolutely horrid, heartless, and callous. Managers do not set good role models. VERY low moral.

    Wish I could rate them with ZERO stars, but have to give at least 1 star before the system will allow me to continue.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your management from the senior regional managers all the way down to site operations managers and start over! They are ruining your company! Can't be trusted...

    Pros

    Home Office allowed a large degree of autonomy when managing the facility and provided the necessary support from their team.

    Cons

    Financial goals, budgets, forecasts were met and exceeded. Moral and spirit amongst the team was increasingly positive and upbeat. Unfortunately, the allegiance of HO is not with their team or its successes, rather with the word of the contracts author- tough game to play.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and recognize real accomplishments from real people. Own the mistake of what was originally agreed, stand tall and support the group responsible for the obvious successes and demand an amicable partnership with the "bear".

    Cons

    none that i can think of
