    Very old school. Progressive products, not a progressive company.

    I have been working at Liberty Tire Recycling full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent pay if negotiated when start. Increases are few and far between. Bonuses, but not structured.

    Cons

    Company isn't interested in listening to new voices and new ideas. Very comfortable doing what they're doing now and have been doing for years. Watch out for being classified as salary when you shouldn't be. You'll be expected to work many more hours than is necessary. Employees who have been here for 7+ years are "safe", no matter what they do they will not get in trouble. Everyone else is fair game. If you come in on through a staffing agency, expect to stay that way for 1 year minimum. And if you'd like to keep that job, no matter where you are in the office, make sure senior leadership sees you every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some great employees with some great ideas, you need to embrace that. Understand your weaknesses. You're not going to understand the ins and outs of every job and every system. That's why you hire people. If those people understand those ins and outs, you need to trust them. Good talent is flying out the door.

    Pros

    There is a great entrepreneurial spirit within the organization. You can learn about the basics of business from entrepreneurs who started companies prior to selling to Liberty. Also, as the company grows, there are opportunities to help change processes and push projects forward and thus change the future of the company. Also, most managers are down to earth and understanding (correction: some, not most). If you are a hard worker and can deal with chaos at times, you can grow with company.

    Cons

    With all the growth comes a lot of changes. When multiple changes happen, sometimes the employees do not feel appreciated or motivated. Pay is good for some but you need to prove yourself. Certain disconnect exists between upper management and rest of employees. They do not see what goes on and do not understand how certain changes will create a very low morale. Also, certain processes have no technology and are very unorganized. If you come from highly structured organization and do not deal well in gray areas, you will not like it here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administer anonymous surveys and get the truth about how employees feel. Instead of making changes and assuming they will work, include regular employees in decision to get feedback prior to forcing any changes. If an employee leaves, backfill their position instead of giving more work to others. Also, have more employee engagement activities and have the senior management required to attend (random happy hours, company picnics, more volunteering)....not just boring monthly birthday celebrations.

    Lastly, if upper management would actually stop and talk to some employees other than just saying hi or waving (attempt to get to actually know them), that goes a LONG way.
