A great company that has a bright future.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TerraCycle as an intern

ProsPeople are incredibly nice and intelligent, culture is relaxed but fast paced, overall a really great experience

ConsI was only an intern here, but it seemed like everyone worked long hours (or the people in my department at least).

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should continue to do what they're doing. It seems like TerraCycle will go to amazing places.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsThe atmosphere is amazing and everyone is friendly. They also gave me the freedom to work on other projects. From the finance sector to the business development sector, they gave interns freedom.

ConsThey are too linient on interns. Spent a total of two weeks doing nothing. Supervisor would give me work that I would complete within hours.

Great people

R&D Intern (Former Employee)
Trenton, NJ

I worked at TerraCycle as an intern for less than a year

ProsSupervisors are really nice, I have learned a lot during my internship

ConsThe internship is unpaid. And Trenton is not a safe place to hang around.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay a little bit more attention to R&D than marketing.

Gain experience and real world look at how today's businesses work

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Trenton, NJ

I have been working at TerraCycle full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat culture, great people, lots of knowledge and inspiration. You'll definitely learn how to work in a faced-paced and sometimes chaotic environment while delivering best in class projects.

ConsNot much (any) training opportunities. So, if you do get promoted and need to learn there aren't too many practical resources. Also, some of senior management is pretty young and doesn't have the the years of perspective and experience to see the big picture of good management

Advice to Senior ManagementGet managers trained on how to manage people. A good employee doesn't necessarily know how to be a good manager and retain good people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

PR Intern

Public Relations Intern (Former Employee)
Trenton, NJ

I worked at TerraCycle as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey gave us real pitching experience, which is a huge plus for a public relations internship. I've had a ton of other internship experience, but now that I'm interviewing for full-time work, I reference this internship the most. The culture was fun and relaxed, and everyone was great to work with. Really good free lunches, too!

ConsThe internship was unpaid, but I think it was worth the experience anyway!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the hard work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Valuable Internship experience that builds students' portfolios

PR and Marketing Intern (Current Employee)
Trenton, NJ

I have been working at TerraCycle as an intern for less than a year

ProsAfter leaving my TerraCycle internship, I was prepared for a "real-world" job in Public Relations. Interns get involved in every aspect of PR, from research, tracking, media lists, to drafting content, to pitching and securing placements. My future employers were impressed with my scope of experience and portfolio.

ConsInterns should be invited to more meetings!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
