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

Pros

Autonomy, work ethic, dedicated employees who deliver strong results, work and life balance is pretty good

Cons

Senior leadership has no connection to the field. They have greater than thou attitude with the customer facing employees. More focus on cutting the workforce to meet Wall Street expectations versus a strategy of selling your way out of a problem. Wall Street manages the company versus the company managing Wall Street.

Advice to Management

Get out in the field and talk with front line employees and managers, Require the BOD to do the same. This is a service business that requires engaged employees and informed customers.

    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.
