    I worked at Phones 4u

    Pros

    They were very fair with paying out commissions and bonuses, if months were slow they'd pay out at 95% of target. If nps negatives were beyond your control you can appeal and remove them. Help was always available, communication was superb. Overall the whole company had a family feel to it.

    Cons

    Nothing, apart from letting greed ruin a great brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never sell to a private equity firm
