    I worked at Veolia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall I enjoyed the work for a long time, the challenge the constant learning but then.....

    Cons

    Upper mgmt decided on a reduction in force and my work load became unbearable, then to find out I was being paid less than my male counterparts who had less responsibilities. The stress was so bad and the hours so long. !. there was no work life balance and 2. people were waiting for me to have a heart attack or stroke.
    I do not miss the politics, or the nonsense.

    Advice to Management

    In training after training for more than a decade I heard "Our employees are aour number one asset.... my suggestion PAY ATTENTION TO THEM AND LISTEN TO THEM WHEN THEY TELL YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG

    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.......

    I worked at Veolia part-time

    Pros

    Very good company. The management is good and they really pay attention to safety. The colleague are very nice.

    Cons

    Almost no cons. Maybe the work environment? Since I work in the wastewater treatment plant. But that happens to all the wastewater treatment operators.

    Advice to Management

    Feel they can do more in the United States. Try to expand the market in the United States.
