Current Employee - Manager in West Chicago, IL

I have been working at Sims Recycling Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They are slowly hiring good people...who tend to quit (see list of cons).
No problems here if you are a man.

Cons

Very little female management
HR is awful - only in it for themselves, no employee support
No professional development
Salaries are ridiculously low
Company is made up of various acquired companies, meaning lots of idiots left over from former smaller companies
Too many VPs, too many managers from acquired companies who feel entitled
Communication is a joke - your customers will know things about the company before you do
Good people are quitting or accepting other jobs due to low salary offers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start paying your employees more money and start communicating.

    I worked at Sims Recycling Solutions

    Pros

    Pay is decent and there are a handfull of smart and quality people. Rising Comodity prices supports the bottom line and growth of the company.

    Cons

    Senior Management is highly disfunctional, lacking strategic direction, and achievement of initiatives. There is little accountablity across the organization and poor acquisition integreation resulted in poor communication and a factious company culture. Frustration and low morale is high at the staff and middle management level.

    Pros

    High standards in occupational health & safety and protecting the environment. It is a feel good job and something to feel proud of.

    Cons

    A global company that claims to place emphasis on their people, but ultimately it's not about the people or the environment... it's about the money. The management model is not aligned at all to support the people who could make the company a success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff... they are proud of what they do (and if they aren't they shouldn't work there) pay them a reasonable cost of living wage, treat people with respect and care about it as much as they do!
