    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 as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The types of people the culture of Veolia attracts are very well rounded. The work you do can be dull depending on where you sit in the corporate pecking order but everyone was straight forward about where I stood. I was given the independence to work on my tasks without any superiors constantly looking over my shoulder which is the way I work best and I think they knew that when they hired me. The best part about the job was the open door policy of even the executive level workers. I reported to the VP of Risk Management for all of North America (it's an international company) and I know he had a lot on his plate but he never hesitated to help me with even the smallest issue I was having. If you're willing to work it's a great place to launch your career.

    Cons

    Not that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
