    I have been working at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. They match 401k and give you discounts on buying stocks. My stock options typically earn me an extra 2k-4k a year depending on the fluctuation of market pricing. My heath insurance is the most comprehensive I have ever had. Full time employees start out with two weeks of paid vacations which increases to three weeks when you hit five years of employment

    Cons

    the annual raises are small

    Pros

    Definitely has opportunities to advance and move around. I've been employed almost 4 years and have been in 3 different departments. Pay is very good for call center work. This company does promote from within 90% of the time. Monday - Friday work day, no weekends in my department.

    Some managers shouldn't be managers, would be the only con I have.
