    Pros

    Friendly and collaborative environment. Great mission and purpose for being. Mostly sustained by long term customer contracts which means good financial visibility and ability to plan.

    Cons

    Management is somewhat risk averse. Business environment is challenging as commodity prices drop and value for recycling falls with it.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take calculated risks and support new business streams with enough resources to succeed. Concert regarding long term viability need to be addressed.

    Pros

    Casual, not difficult work, not competitive, not cut throat, no high expectations, attempts to be fun, bagels on Monday, flexible vacation days, great benefits, you can slide by and doing nothing all day as long as you show up and kinda look busy and say mediocre things in meetings.

    Cons

    Boring (due to) Lack of direction, lack of care for the quality of your work, lack of recognition for work done, passive aggressive egg shell culture, extraordinary environment if you are attempting to push towards mediocrity where people are waiting to be laid off as an excuse to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Do you care more about the work, or the appearance that work is being done? Doing deep work into what works and appreciating the intense battle of morale that those who care actually face upon trying. Eliminating internal cowardice is a great way to begin communication.

    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 Management

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

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Throw in the towel. You have failed.
