I worked at Waste Management full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great company, good benefits, One of the few companies that still throws a good Christmas party.

Cons

IT infrastructure is a sweat shop. They will work you 24 x 7 the lay you off when they outsource your job. I was't personally laid off but got out while I still had my sanity. Lots of back stabbing and internal competition to survive.

Advice to Management

Stop encourages the favorite child culture. I have never seen another place where people in Management roles were so cut throat toward their peers. The culture inside IT Infrastructure is really unfortunate. WM could be so great with some minor changes.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, some good managers are still left but most have moved on

    Cons

    Inept management, no set standard procedures, inadequate staffing with unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    I still don't understand why Oakleaf set the policies for WM when they clearly do not understand the business model of a publicly owned corporation. OL is managed by a group of simpletons with a tendency to play the blame game. WM corp needs to wake up and get rid of the OL leech.

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

    Pros

    The company is full of opportunities and challnges. No day is ever the same. You truly hold your future in your hands within the organization.

    Cons

    Constantly changing of inatives makes it very difficult to accurately track results of what you have done. It appears as though the organization doesnt have a clearly defined track of what they wish to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Clear direction, better communication and less 'fire drills'.
