    I worked at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the leadership at WM is truly committed to the safety of their employees. There are some managers that don't quite get it, but that is not because of lack of support from Sr. Leadership.

    Cons

    They may have cut too far in trying to reduce management structure costs. All the same work must be done (if not more) and resources are limited.

    Advice to Management

    The few safety resources left in the field must be more highly valued and compensated. They are key to continued success. The size of the group has been greatly diminished, so the folks left have tremendous responsibility.

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

    Pros

    Huge company, many divisions, financially strong, lots of opportunities (especially if one's open to relocation) across the country. Has traditionally been very generous to it's employees, and formerly enjoyed a great reputation as a great place to work.

    Cons

    Many company functions are becoming centralized, which causes significant loss of "local" talents and relationships. This is do to cost-cutting, even though all the information put out by the company always seems to be rolling in dough.

    Advice to Management

    Why keep dumping the people who do the real work?
