    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Veolia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of potential for initial career advancement due to their ES I and ES II tests that you can take once you fill out a booklet with performed tasks. If you then pass the exam, which is open book, you receive a raise and become an ES II... Working onsite at different facilities can be very interesting and lead to networking and new job opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely high turn over rate leads to low moral and the overworking of employees. Management does not provide aid to overworked employees at all. The management in Latham consistently makes false promises to employees, further depleting moral.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Veolia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's hard to find any. This job was a nightmare from the beginning

    Cons

    - Gender discriminiation: inappropriate jokes from senior staff, females paid 20% less than male counterparts w/ less experience and qualifications, general disrespect and females valued less than males (senior staff is 100% white males) - Very low PTO - Very poor medical plans (high premiums and co-pays) - No real HR department, so senior executives were able to make very inappropriate jokes and comments and get away with it

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn, grow, and potentially make a career if you find a comfortable fit. There are many facets to Veolia's business. Corporate overhaul has trimmed excess and efficiency is a top priority.

    Cons

    Autonomous middle managers, especially those who take a hands-off & reactive management approach, create a chaotic culture. Ironic how the company just went through a "unification" campaign titled One Veolia resulting in more levels of separation and dissatisfaction throughout this local organization.
