    I worked at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    Late organization, great benefits and pay scale structure. The people were amazing to work with. Most people, if they can survive the changes every 2-3 years, do prefer to work there a long time.

    Cons

    Every 2-3 years they seem to make large changes that affect all employees at all levels.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay well, great people. Always trying to change to stay ahead of the times (eg. safety, equality, etc)

    Cons

    At times, too much revolved around 'budgets' and the annual PI's were hard to always justify. A little slow to roll out new policies at times, however, that being said, it is a huge company and nothing can happen overnight. Work, life balance can be difficult at times as well.
