There is room for growth. Management cares about the well being of their staff. Management is always listening for ways to improve the facility. Wages can be discussed, and safety is priority.

This employer hires staff who aren't qualified, providing an excuse to under pay them. Management are confused and disorganized, provide very little direction, and are completely incompetent. Bookkeeper is unqualified for their role and is snarky and rude to staff members. They ruin the workplace culture with that poor attitude.
The plant is filthy and poorly run. This workplace is a nightmare waiting for regulators to come inspect and shut the place down.
Pros
Reasonable work-life balance
Cons
Poor management, low salary, unqualified staff

Very dirty and unsafe, management is very poor in their ability to be fair and lack in safety culture.
Wouldn’t recommend working here as you will notice a decline in health.

I have worked for Covanta for 15 years
The local managers at the plant level are extremely way over there heads. Local plants are usually mismanaged but at the corporate level it is well run.

The work itself is routinely hazardous to you’re health even with ppe as you don’t know what you are handling on a daily basis
Pros
High pay
Cons
Very unhealthy

Company has no respect for there workers. Operate with too few employees, and expect the employees they do have to live at work. Poor benefits.

Working in management means long hours of at least 10 to as many as 16 hours per day.
Management does not care about your well being because it is all about the dollars and the shareholders.

Other co-managers do not understand accounting and have no respect for your contributions


The company doesn't respect your private time.


EVERYTHING IN THEIR accounting operations is manual!


You'll be doing invoicing using a spreadsheet.


STAY AWAY!
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours. No respect for your skills and person. Expect to carry your laptop to doctors appt.
