I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Stable in field positions. Good experience. Stable company for the most part. Great benefits package. Most of management is very dedicated and watches out for their employees.

Cons

Very hard to create change especially on the employee engagement spectrum. Company tends to make mistakes on hiring senior leadership especially in the Customer Service/Experience & Employee Engagement arenas. They continuously hire huge project teams, only to realign and release everyone six months later.

Not on the high end of the pay spectrum and the work is not always glamorous. IT leadership is very slow making decisions.

Advice to Management

If you have a vision for a major company project or employee initiative stick with it. Don't mothball it every 6 months because of budget. Invest for the long term, not the short.
