    Pros

    Good initial training
    Real possibility to make a lot of money
    Culture can be fun - but very male-oriented

    Cons

    Trapped in a monthly cycle
    Never make as much as they promise you
    Management shuffles are constantly occurring
    Plateau after 6 months, very little development after that.
    Huge Attrition rate of staff (circa 60% a year in some teams)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees more
    Give a new strategy a little time before changing again.
    Implement a real quarter by quarter career development plan
