I have been working at Waste Management full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Compensation for work is very good. Benefits package is great. Job security is very good because there is always something getting broken or a PM inspection to do.

Cons

Raises come in very small percentages so try to get what you want right off the bat because it will probably only increase by a few cents every year when you are eligible for a raise and get it. Overtime is expected and weekend work is usually mandatory. You often have to work holidays too but you get double time for it.

Advice to Management

The good managers are doing a great job with what they can but their bosses are often the problem. Accountability for all levels of management would be something to improve on.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people working at WM. Priority is the customer and providing world class customer service.

    Cons

    The focus is all about the numbers and keeping the investors happy. Less focus on employees and work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Find the balance you once had when Larry O'Donnell was at the company. Larry was a very people oriented COO and was concerned about the employees.
