Current Employee - Manager in West Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Manager in West Chicago, IL

I have been working at Sims Recycling Solutions full-time (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.

    I worked at Sims Recycling Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is nothing to say here (5 words)

    Cons

    I was working alone, in a single office, in a single corridor, in a single floor. NOBODY else was working there. I could be weeks without talking to anybody except the security guard to say good morning. NOBODY was monitoring me, nobody asked me to do any specific job...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please... EXIST! For good or bad, you must do ANYTHING.
