    I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, management had an open door policy

    Cons

    Too much work for the staff to truly be as effective as possible. Supported other market areas out of the center in Phoenix. Too many different processes in different states. The customer experience team was sometimes overwhelmed with the work load, and the sales and management in the area they were supporting made changes to process on a regular basis and in most cases did not advise the reps or management of the process chnage until a problem with an account occurred.Too many people making decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the reps and supervisors doing the job to support your operations. They are part of the team, and your communication and support are critical

    Pros

    Good company, processes are very well thought out, very nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement, they seem to be out of touch with local competition. This may be a function of being a "Large Blue Chip" in a land of mom-and-pops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Split the company, spin off the landfills, the residential collections and let the commercial collections run its course.

    Pros

    awesome coworkers, great benefits- one of the best anywhere. Great place for people entering the workforce and looking to advance into different divisions.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs and restructuring initiatives. Not a lot of good project management as the company consistently changes direction after investing tons of money and time only to scrap the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver on your promises. Invest more time and money into employee development and training.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, great salary, and commission for sales positions. Good flexible schedule in outside sales.

    Cons

    Way too much micromanagement. Also price increases make keeping customers nearly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees than the stock market. Losing way too many good employees.
