Pros

Flexible schedule, people are for the most part okay to work with, retention side is not too bad, WM just price increases existing customers too much which means you will get a lot of phone calls about price going up.

Cons

new business goals are for the most part unrealistic

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are great to work with and make you want to be there.

    Cons

    Management does not appear too concerned about the growth and development of staff. Favoritism at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Work more towards improving employee satisfaction and promoting from within.

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

    Pros

    They pay well (when the bonus is paid out)
    Their corporate vision around environmentalism was interesting (but empty)

    Cons

    - Leadership changes their strategy on a quarterly basis
    - Very immature and old-school leaders; out of touch with workforce and industry trends/best practices
    - The corporate hierarchy is made up of managers who only manage perception upwards and mismanage their teams downwards
    - Incompetent, jerk executives across organizations were normal
    - Bad mid- and upper-management was rewarded financially and with more responsibilities (regardless how unhappy top employees were with their leadership)
    - Quarter after quarter of missed deadlines, broken promises, wasted budget, bad priorities due to upper management ineptitude (not workforce incompetence)
    - What does this endemic mismanagement lead to? No reward for the workforce -- over a year without merit increases or bonuses! (bonuses had been paid out for the past 10 years until now)

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together -- all the best talent has left and continues to leave. The workforce has gotten more mediocre every quarter and your workplace reputation will shortly be unfixable (if not already). What a squandered opportunity.
