    Pros

    My peers and supervisors were professional, highly skilled entrepreneurs. My position allowed me to have an independent working environment with minimal supervision.

    Cons

    They wanted to push annual salary down to put more of the compensation into the comission arena. It took me seventeen years to get my base up. Why would I take a reduction?

    Advice to Management

    Do not cram salary reductions down the employee's throats

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, bonus payout every year.

    Cons

    Very political, no real growth unless you were in the "in" crowd. I made numerous requests to get more involved due to my knowledge of the operations we had (I was there 7 years), which led to.......nothing. I did generate a massive amount of revenue/cost savings from an Accounting role which covered my personal payroll costs to the company (over $1m) and still no kudos from Senior Management. I don't miss it one bit......

    Advice to Management

    Eh, why bother......they know everything already.......
