    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...

    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good. The commute is close.

    Cons

    Everything else. They don't value their employees at all. They feel they can replace anyone at anytime and definitely will... WITHOUT NOTICE!!! I've seen MANY past employees get blindsided for no real reason and either lose their job or keep them and make their days miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Start to value their employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is very simple. A trained ape could do this job. Boss buys lunch on Fridays. Not much else to note

    Cons

    Nobody comes to work. Ever. "Working from home" is frequent, but none of these people can ever be reached. No one respects my coworker and I because we are younger. Making the bare minimum and doing someone else's job who is salaried with benefits for no reason. Wasteful if you ask me.

    Advice to Management

    Know your employees and their jobs better. Know when your employees are working or "working from home". Respect employees enough to pay them fair wages.

    Pros

    None at all. Short commute.

    Cons

    This company is sinking and it's showing through in how they treat their employees. They are on a crash course and treat people like they are trash, easily replaced. Total disregard for their families, lifestyles and happiness. Horrible work environment.

    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay well... which they have to just to trick anyone to work here.

    Cons

    The Regional and Corporate management in this company is all but that. They don't manage, they throw people under the bus and fire people randomly. You never really feel safe or valued in this company. It's just a horrible environment to work in. I dread coming to work to see who is throwing who under the bus today. Management doesn't care about anyone and while they have their heads up their you know what, they treat you like peasants.

    Advice to Management

    START OVER!!!

    Pros

    Dedicated employees, good benefits, and a passionate CEO.

    Cons

    Top down management, employees feel they have no voice with minimal if any reward for their hard work and efforts, and leaders who are chosen because of who they know, not because they are the best fit.

    Advice to Management

    Take some of the leadership advice you feed to your people. Put more effort in the selection process of your leaders so your hard working hourly employees can feel that pride they once had.
