"Waste Management is a great company to work for. However, it is extremely hard to get advancements. The company is competitive with initial salary packages. Most people that work there are comfortable and happy so there is not a lot of turn around."

"Waste Management is great company and excellent steward of the environment. I believe they place extensive value on their customers and are trying to find ways to place the same on their employees. The IT staff is fairly large and not as well established from a standards and process. Overall, a good place to work for most."
