    Pros

    Some of the work they do is very admirable and the field consultants are usually great and well educated people.

    Cons

    Low pay, No training, Terrible management, Unfair (UK gets all their holidays and then some, US barely get any) No room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs a lot of work. Upper management only care about making profits to fill their own pockets and stuff their own faces. Maybe they can pay their employees a decent salary if they shave a little off of the hundreds of thousands they make. Show some empathy for you employees and how about you let the US employees have just as many holidays and vacations as the UK folks?
