      Pros

      High standards in occupational health & safety and protecting the environment. It is a feel good job and something to feel proud of.

      Cons

      A global company that claims to place emphasis on their people, but ultimately it's not about the people or the environment... it's about the money. The management model is not aligned at all to support the people who could make the company a success.

      Not a good work culture

      Pros

      The company stands for a good cause- electronic recycling

      Cons

      The management does not trust its employees at all, everybody in management position micro manages employees - The policies in place are very old and definitely not meant to benefit the hourly workers - The tuition reimbursement program meant to help out employees financially is designed in such a way not most employees would rather pay out of their own pockets - The pay rate is below average for the industry standards, vacation is only two weeks - If you are one minute late, even on a day like a snow storm they deduct 15 minutes out of your pay - There is no way of moving in the company for hourly workers

      Pros

      It really depends on what department you work for. The real benefits of this work environment is when you work with people who you mesh well with. There are a lot of physical obstacles that come with it all aspects of the company some more than others. Just make sure you are willing to work on all weather conditions.

      Cons

      At times no lunch Management is not acomidating Senority takes effect No raises after multiple responsibilities
