    One of the worse run companies ever, consistently bordering on bankruptcy and stiffing employees.

    Pros

    Good idea, saving money for consumers and saving the environment. Feel good to save landfills from used cellphones. Local Ann Arbor company, not one of many left. Been around a long time but new management team the worst.

    Cons

    Lousy leadership, top heavy management team. Fly in executives from around the country, give them a car and rent them a townhouse and repeatedly lay off most of the workers. Too many do nothing Vice Presidents and an HR department that creates policies designed to cheat employees and suppliers out of due rewards while enhancing a culture of failure, catty fiefdoms and supposed big company rules and and procedures. In fairness, hard to make money in this industry but fast and nimble is required and this place is ponderous at best based on lack of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the company and fire the current leadership team, starting with HR leadership who allowed this culture of losing and executive entitlement while spending other people's money.

    Pros

    Paid time off is offered to full time employees. Thats about the only thing i can think of thats positive about this company.

    Cons

    If you enjoy being taken advantage of in tough economic times this is the place for you. Do not expect any accolades or compensation for money saving innovative ideas, as your supervisor(s) will take full credit for them. HR is only interested in helping the company, not its employees which are held in the same regard as dog droppings. Moral is extremely low, turnover rate is extremely high, overmanaged with incompetent, egotistical, executive wanna-bees who rule by fear. Literally hundreds of rules, policies, and loopholes that HR has cooked up to hose you out of as much pay and benefits as possible. Not to mention the abuse of security cameras thrown in the mix, this is without a doubt the worst place i have ever worked in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all the money you spend on useless and expensive VP's and middle management, you could replace them all with skilled salespeople and in turn you will #1-Make money #2- Be able to pay your shareholders AND employees more and #3- Be pleasantly surprised at how much more production you would get out of people who dont feel supressed or fearful of losing their jobs.

    Pros

    The mission of the organization, and the impact it has on a number of charities is very important. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Basically everything else. The management is incompetent, employee moral is horrific, and the support for employees is abysmal. I wouldn't recommend the place to my worst enemy.
