        I worked at Veolia

        Pros

        Pay and M-F work schedule

        Cons

        My former boss regularly harassed me and some of her peers did as well. There is little accountability and I held on just long enough until I found a better job. Good pay is important, but poor company culture is what makes a good job on paper a really terrible job and not worth staying. It may be hard to tell what some managers are really like during an interview, but to me the culture was generally abrasive and combative...

        Advice to Management

        Hire managers that have a moral compass. Make an effort to improve the culture. Make Veolia's culture match the value provided by your pay and benefits.

        Pros

        Good atmosphere, flexible, great vacation and sick time. Decent pay, Good benefits!

        Cons

        No real room to grow or development paths. Management get theirs, but the worker bee’s don’t necessarily get theirs...

        Advice to Management

        Help those who want to grow. Give them advise, what they can do, where they can go, what it takes to get their. If you put effort in, you’ll get a return back.

        Pros

        The company is in a great industry for making a difference - the opportunity draws many talented people

        Cons

        The company is unstable and treats some of their employees very poorly - there are some very good people in the company and working with them makes a great experience but there are a lot more who are not out for anyone but themselves and that kind of thing is rewarded by upper management. Inclusion and diversity are treated as a PR box to be checked by upper management.

        Advice to Management

        Not sure what to suggest

        I worked at Veolia full-time for more than 9 years

        Pros

        Good base salary and benefits ~ If you are willing to sacrifice your family life and health in the process...

        Cons

        Senior Leadership is clueless. Sr. Leaders spend most of their time managing HR issues due to burn out and employment issues as well as traveling to MBR's where the GM's paint a story that is far from reality in order to placate those leaders. In short, a big waste of time and no real progress regarding the turnover rate. The ESS organization is BEYOND LEAN to the extent that the talented employees burn out or leave....

        Advice to Management

        To PARIS, with regard to Sr. Leadership in the ESS division, clean house...PERIOD. The organization is going nowhere fast. The resources available to the employees aren't even close to what's needed to manage the existing base business, not to mention the business Veolia hope's to attain.
