    Global presence and unmatched technical expertise in the industry. Cutting edge technologies and a lot of wonderful people in the organization.

    If you ever decide to leave the company (Pittsburgh office specific), be prepared to be treated like you never even existed. Complete lack of respect from senior management. What a shame!!

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and LISTEN. Focus on improving culture for the sake of the employees. They are all human.

    Current Employee - Creative Services Manager in Indianapolis, IN

    I have been working at Veolia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Good 401 K plan. Co-workers are talented. Wide range of projects makes the job interesting but challenging.

    Cons

    Lacks clear direction from management and training of employees. Systems are constantly changing and not always for the better. Employees must have a DYI ability to get things done on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining your loyal and talented employees. There has been a huge loss of intellectual property over the past 3 years. A very poor practice to be successful.

    Pros

    Some very good people work for Veolia.

    Cons

    Management has no clue how to run an office. They try, but the people they have making the decisions have no experience. HR is useless.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with less sizzle and more steak.
