    Pros

    Let's Go paid me a decent hourly wage, and I was allowed time off when I needed it at short notice.

    Cons

    The work was tedious, and the job I ended up doing was much different from what I signed up for. Management also put me in charge of cold calling a number of countries to solicit sales, but because of different time zones, I would have had to shift my hours around to accommodate the open hours of these international businesses. This meant I couldn't make sales because I wasn't able to work during those hours (often late at night), which Let's Go knew because I had indicated my specific available hours (I was a student).

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management other than to say that more organization and communication would be beneficial to your fellow employees.


  2. A decent summer job for Harvard students

    Pros

    The pay is decent, the work culture is pretty laid back, it's a nice location, and the work is not difficult.

    Cons

    Some books seemed to find it almost impossible to finish their workloads while I was there, although they've since changed around the structure. I was also was disatisfied with the communication with some of the management - while some I really respected, others bothered me.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard for me to offer advice now since the company is changed. I did feel that the workload was unevenly split while I was there, and the high rate of company turnover is definitely an issue.
