I worked at RecycleBank LLC. full-time (More than 3 years)
Founding team and early culture was exactly what you want in a startup; there were challenges but also respect, an attitude of doing it together and real teamwork. There was true creativity at play but it was never fully realized.
As CEO was replaced, as more than 75+ people were hired, and as new CEO brought his management in, things changed, the vision was more than muddied, resulting in lackluster results and then layoffs, huge shifts in priority and mediocre partnerships. Team heads were replaced and the old guard was mostly pushed out - the soul of the organization walked out with those people.
Advice to Management
Pivots are one thing as you look at opportunities, but brand dilution and culture dilution are real.
I was interviewed by the Account Manager & Community Outreach Manager. The interview was a pretty standard interview that included questions about my academic background and relevant work experience. This position was a summer internship.
