    I have been working at Universal Recycling Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The industry will only grow and there are a few bright and dedicated people added to the company in the past year or so. If you are looking to work here you need to wait until they have some good leadership that stays in place.

    Cons

    The senior leadership team has a revolving door. The only two constants are the President and the HR manager. Put 2 and 2 together. We can only hope a couple of the newer managers stay with the company. They have literally hired, fired, and laid off hundreds of people in the past few years at all levels. It feels like URT is late to the game in all of the sales areas they want to grow in. Those ships have sailed and URT didn't have any tickets. Company has plenty of service issues and is struggling to maintain any regular business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the veteran employees have bad attitudes. People work against each other on everything. Employees are not valued or trusted to do their jobs and they don't trust each other. The direction changes on a regular basis on every level in every department.

    I have been working at Universal Recycling Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has potential but is constantly replacing management and has incompetent people that are more concerned with looking out for themselves - no team efforts here.

    Cons

    Lack of vision by management. No follow-thru once they decide on a policy/plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture. Management needs to embrace new policies that will keep people (turnover at this company is HIGH).

    Pros

    The company has a good idea

    Cons

    Too bad management is running it into the ground. Supervisors don't know what they are doing or how to do the job, so they cannot effectively manage. The company expects too much out of employees. Will have you do several different jobs, with unreasonable expectations. Don't appreciate employees hard work at all. No raises at all in more than a year for anyone. Who wants to stay at a company where you don't get your yearly performance review and raise as they tell you when they hire you, but upper management keeps getting raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they do the job, they are your best source of information. How about some raises, you can't expect employees to work for a whole year plus without a raise. Treat your employees with respect. Have supervisors that have done the job and know what should be expected.

    Pros

    Universal Recycling Technologies is leading the effort with regards to responsible recycling. This company truly sees the importance of investing in its future by investing in its most basic resource - its employees. This company has gone to great lengths in contributing to a sustainable society, and this is really just the beginning. Applauding Universal Recycling Technologies for all that has been accomplished, and looking forward to all that is to come.

    Cons

    No longer considered a true con...communication between departments and senior management to all employees and all locations continues to improve all the time.
