-Independent problem solving

Cons

-The hourly workers are resistant to change in policies and system changes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to put the people who not only get things done, but get them done the right way in charge. There are too many people who take detrimental shortcuts.

    Pros

    Sims Metal is an interesting industry to work in. It's a pretty relaxed work place were jeans and a polo are fine. Have lots of great co-workers that make work fun. Lots of locations across the U.S so the ability to move up is there if you're willing to relocate. Overall work-life balance is pretty good as well and health benefits are very good.

    Cons

    You need to be patient as the company tends to take their time when it comes to decisions regarding promotions, pay raises, and annual bonus. When they do finally come through it's not exactly what they originally agreed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees aren't just numbers. Don't expect commitment, hard work, and dedication from employees if you're not going to fulfill promises.
