    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 full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people were good to work with

    Safety, Safety, Safety. Too many vehicles were not in working condition and duck tape was a common tool to fix and repair parts.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on equipment and repairing equipment.

    Pros

    Good environment and people to work with.

    Flexible work schedule as long as the work gets done.

    Strong Benefits.

    Annual bonuses

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth. Management looks at you as a number, not a member of the team.

    Management plays favorites with a lot of office politics

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in your employees and their work, not advantage of them.

    Pros

    Access to worldwide experience and knowledge through the many companies owned by the Parent.

    Cons

    Complex organizational structure with resources competing for similar business. Many middle managers trying to prove worth, but missing their day-to-day objectives. Answering the same questions to the same managers becomes 50% effort (conservative) for subordinates.

    I worked at Veolia (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro is the location, the company itself has none.

    Cons

    Company is always changing and makes poor business decisions.
    Do not work there and I would not recommend a friend working there it is a toxic environment.

    Pros

    Great pay to start. Great industry! Doing good things for the environment. Great people in the lower ranks that truly care.

    Cons

    Bosses make promises but never deliver. Lots of random layoffs despite the need for help. Forces those left to cover.

    Advice to Management

    Get the old CEO back at least he cared about the people.
