You will meet different people.
Only if you are from India will you be able to grow with this company. If you are a woman, you will be treated poorly and looked down upon. They say women are only there to serve the men. You will be hired and told that your pay is one thing. However you will be paid less. If you bring this up more than one time you will be yelled at like a child, threaten, and fired. They drop you off in far away places which are unsafe. One young woman was attacked and nearly raped. She told the managers and she was fired. If anyone brings that up they will also get fired. Then they pick you back up 9 hours later, and told to sell the plans they gave you. Most times this is impossible in these destitute places where you are in fear of being attacked or robbed. Mangers threaten you if you disagree with your check, or if you speak back to them. They bully you like you are a child and put fear in you that they will physically attack you.
Advice to Management
Learn to accept that to conduct business in the U.S. that you must treat your employees fairly not mistreat women. Also that hiring managers who are qualified with actual experience in managing in the U.S. will allow the company to grow. You cannot bring only people from India with no experience and send them to the U.S. to manage all of your locations. It is causing your company to fail and it is discrimination. Have U.S. people with experience in the U.S. in managing to manage your locations. Also in the U.S. women are equal and what you are doing to them is illegal.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lycatel (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.
Very easy interview with normal questions regarding you, your experience and knowledge about the company and position. I was referred by my friend. I was contacted for an interview and received an email that I was successful.
- what does a customer service advisor do? Answer Question
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
Lycatel was founded in 2002, and started as a small calling card provider in London, UK. Overtime, the business grew to become the largest calling card provider in Europe. By 2006-7, Lycatel became more synonymous with support services to the new Lycamobile SIM card service rather than calling cards themselves which had begun to decline in popularity.
Mission: (2005) to be the largest calling card company in Europe
