    I worked at Lycamobile full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Better than cleaning a nuclear reactor.

    Cons

    Newark management have no concept of how or desire to run a legal and ethical business in the US. Office work conditions are based on garment industry in India. Women are second class citizens. If you choose to work there, keep good records, consider undercover cameras and recordings, get any promise in writing (unlikely to respond), and keep a record of everything that they say. You'll need it.

    Advice to Management

    US and UK Managers receive advice all the time from knowledgeable people on how to properly run a US business. They know what is wrong and choose to do nothing. As long as the money is rolling in, and they can avoid paying employees and suppliers, all is good.

    I have been working at Lycamobile full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no Pros to working for this company. Well, maybe only one they do provide you with a car for Hot Spot Sales Employee's during the last couple of months before we had to ride the bus all over Los Angeles.

    Cons

    This company is horrible they have no idea what they are doing in the Los Angeles market. The product is below industry standards and they send their employee's out to battle a war with no weapons. They treat their employee's poorly, do not pay them will and promise them commissions that we never see. They expect the cell phone stores to do their job of brand awareness. They have no management skills, they treat women a second class citizens and have they have created a very hostile working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming employees for your product failure and blame yourself's for entering a market with you did not research completely.

    Pros

    The other sales people are nice.

    Cons

    They will treat you very poorly. Only people from India will be promoted or given raises. They speak ill of the other cultures of their employees who are not of India descent. Women are said that they are not to speak to the men in management positions. If you disagree they will threaten you and say that American women need to be beaten and put in their place. They will get in women's face and yell, curse and act as if they are about to hit the women and scare the women. They say that is how it is in their culture and religion.

    Advice to Management

    What you are doing is wrong and not acceptable in the United States. If that treatment is normal in other countries than keep that treatment in those countries. Do not bring that poor treatment to the United States.
