    #fail: missed opportunity

    I have been working at RecycleBank LLC.

    Pros

    Such a cool idea. About 5 years back the company attracted strong talent.

    Cons

    Such a mess following the CEO swap from founder Ron Gonen to suit Jonathan Hsu. Several issues followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not 'the appearance of value' (former CEO) but the ACTUAL value that drives a company's meaning.

    I have been working at RecycleBank LLC. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, super smart team, terrific opportunities to gain responsibility, try out new functions and grow your career. Plus being a mission driven firm is a big bonus. Every start-up has it's growing pains, but overall the work life balance is good and the business and team is growing.

    Cons

    Can't say there isn't a long night or weekend spent working here or there - but the work is rewarding and it's a good feeling when you're contributing to the big wins.

    I worked at RecycleBank LLC.

    Pros

    Great concept and cause, a few good people who seem to care, program could actually work

    Cons

    There are two camps and you are either in or you're out. Those in management seem to have their own agenda and do not really care what challenges and perceptions are actually faced in the field. A lot of smoke and mirrors and plenty of broken promises both internally and to clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pack it up boys and girls....your ship has sailed and you are sitting on the dock.

    Pros

    Working for a good cause of recycling, benefits are okay, working in Center City Philadelphia (Downtown)

    I worked at RecycleBank LLC. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Feel good about the mission of the company.

    Cons

    No real business direction, no chance at profitability. Senior management focussed on covering their own hides and not on creating an environment of collaboration and growth. No sense of community beyond lowest levels of employees, every man / woman for him/herself. Dishonest senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw in the towel. You have failed.

    I have been working at RecycleBank LLC. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment - it's notable that people are more engaged and passionate when working on something they truly care about. Secondary bi-product of the mission is there is significantly less politics and inter-departmental chest pounding at Recyclebank. Everyone is focused on the customer and the cause.. refreshing change from other places I have worked. A ton of A-players at all levels within the organization.... Lots to learn from peers and management. Sr. Management is transparent to the goals, and progress of the company against those goals. Sustainability is more than just a tag line - employees are encouraged to take a day a quarter to volunteer.

    Cons

    unstructured work environment - if you are looking for someone to tell you what to do, this isn't the company for you. The expectation is that everyone is focused on the mission and does what's necessary to help the company meet it's goals.
    Dynamic market - The market for sustainability is constantly changing and Recyclebank is changing rapidly to meet the opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on strategy and keep innovating. Let's keep making a difference!
