No opinion of CEO

I worked at Shred-it International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very flexible schedule, Little to no turnover, Diverse co-workers from all walks of life
After work team building exercises on Monday's, Tuesday's, Thursday's and Fridays
Attractive - friendly well put together MGT at least in the Miami branch,Get the job done
mentality spread throughout - almost infectious

Cons

At the end of the day your not curing cancer, your selling a grey box that holds paper.
You must come to terms with that on day 1 or you will be in for a world of hurt

Occasional meetings about when they were going to hold meetings

Advice to Management

Sales are more important than fake appointments, don't inquire how
the sales came to be - Just be glad they did!

    I have been working at Shred-it International full-time

    Pros

    Quality benefits package, including 401k and education reimbursement. In principal, it is a good service with legitimate security benefits to the company's customer base.

    Cons

    Company is managed by holding investors, and every move is blatantly with the idea of packaging for a future sale. Key layers of management, corporate and branch support have been cut to save salary expense, meaning many employees are being asked to do more and get less in return. Attempts to integrate new technologies have fallen flat due to poor conversion and implementation. Ultimately, most employees are terribly dissatisfied with the recent direction of the company, and customer's are clearly seeing how little they are being valued through each transition.

    Advice to Management

    No advice would matter...it's extremely transparent that the company doesn't seek long-term viability. They are only seeking the best way to package and unload the assets to a willing buyer in the next year or two.
