And since the left turn light turns green after the straight through traffic in the same direction stops you are almost guaranteed to get the left turn at the light before the straight through.
I don't think it matters that the left turn comes after the green for the other direction unless the other lights in the area are coordinated with this light. Won't you essentially hit the light a random time in the sequence.

I usually do blindly follow the instruction and can say that after taking the route a couple times, waze stops giving me the clearly stupid routes. So my suggestion is to take the route a couple of times so waze has the data it need to route well.

I doubt it, as these issues are reported by many users and I doubt most users are pulling up the alternate route screen.
