    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Current Employee - Hot Spots Sales Associate in Los Angeles, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Stupid decision making and very irrational which may sometime feels as you are working with idiot kids

    Cons

    They are very racist and only supportive of Sri Lankan Tamils. They launder money and evade Tax at all times. All senior workers come from overseas on visitor visa and work here illegally. All money goes back to support Tamil Tigers militias in Sri Lanka. All their owners and senior staff are ex Tamil tigers fighters and have mafia links everywhere and they are not shy to threaten their employees with it.

    I worked at Lycamobile

    Pros

    There are defiantly no pros.

    You get free food on Friday, the food is of poor quality.

    Cons

    You get paid on the last working day which is normal procedure for a company but on the last working day you get paid around 5PM/6pm.

    They have illegal workers working in all areas of the business which they cover up. Home office hurry up before they cover there tracks.
    You have people working in HR that change there job titles to suit them.
    There is huge amounts of corruption and dishonesty among management.
    Family run business, so only family get promoted or if you know management personally.
    The HR team that work there have no direction to lead the team or make changes, and they favor people from there own culture.
    Salary too low for qualified hard working individuals, basically if your honest person do not work there. If you are dishonest person you will suit working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corruption needs to stop and dishonesty, you are worst company and management to work for

    As management you don't even realize staff turnover is so high

    You need to be honest and stop recruiting workers with no visa to make quick money

    Stop hiding and covering up your tracks on dishonesty and illegal activity
