    Underutilized staff

    Pros

    Sims gave me great training, some of which cost thousands of dollars! I was able to expand my job description and do new things

    Cons

    I wasn't able to do as much as I could have with my training. Day-to-day, I hardly did any work at all. I felt extremely under-utilized. When I asked if I could take more responsibilities, I was denied the chance. Some people did nothing and were just fine with it. I was not one of them.

    Terrible Culture

    Pros

    The best pro has to be the dress code... as jeans works any day of the week! Also got a bonus once?

    Cons

    If you're looking for a place that's no fun to work at, where there's no focus on career development and the culture is terrible, look no further, Sims is the place. Conditions are particularly rough in the NY corporate office, having visited there on occasion. People there seem to blame HR, which is not very well liked and has sparred with other global leaders in the organization.

    Diversity and Inclusion? .... more like boys club

    Pros

    After working here, other companies don’t seem so bad! EAP is offered but not communicated. Processes and machines are pretty interesting and fun to watch.

    Cons

    Females are excluded from upper management roles. Very “high school” like environment that will exploit young and vulnerable workers. Unfortunately, the time I worked for Sims bullying and harassment was common and complaints are ignored; resulting with the victim found at fault “it is their perception of the situation” which is wrong. The moment you mention talking to HR you are pulled away and had a chat with. Equal opportunity does not exists.
