    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Waste Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stability in this big corporation

    Cons

    The constant pressure for budget cuts. Which is normal at any company however nobody should be asked to do anything unsafe or illegal for their job. If you stick to your integrity then you are easily disposable. Cliques are not meant for the workplace. Unfortunately this division has them.

    Advice to Management

    If you have employees who have worked and dedicated their lives for this company for over 15+yrs and have always been exemplary employees and suddenly they start getting let go,maybe you should be looking at upper management as the problem. Management needs to learn to appreciate dedicated staff

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hours, work-life balance, pay and culture in office I work at.

    Cons

    Too Many Silos, difficulty navigating changes and revisions to policy in procedures as sometime you barely get you hands around one, then a change.

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to give advise to Management to a company that pays well, great work/life balance and a great team built by my direct manager. The only advise I can give if the business model is very aggressive and like to see it hold with the pressure it puts on the workers. There are a lot of imposing forces that work like checks in balances. They seem to get in the way of the goal of servicing the customer, which turns out to be a less effective and efficient way to service the customer.

    Unfair practices in MICHIGAN, INDIANA and OHIO

    Advice to Management

    Racism in 2019 still exist at Waste Management in Michigan! The leadership let’s things happen that shouldn’t as well as does not care about anyone but her bonus! Sad to say it’s only in this area. Something must be done from the corporate perspective. Hope this helps any future candidates.
