    I worked at Sims Group full-time

    Pros

    Team members all have a great deal of knowledge. Longevity of employees can be both a blessing and a curse.
    Biggest PRO is not working for these people.

    Cons

    CEO along with CFO have no clue how to run a scrap operation. Their main concern is their Bonus paycheck.
    Not a professional female friendly company. If you are a clerk you will be fine, even if you have no idea how to do your job.
    Toxic negative environment.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and CFO along with Board of Directors need to be replaced.
    CEO should spend less time starring in his own productions movies on Safety and focus on other issues. Other employees can handle starring in those films. What a joke
