    Pros

    You get to travel and live abroad

    Cons

    The uncertainty, inconsistency, and carelessness of management outways the pros of this job. If you want to wake up every day not knowing if you'll get paid, make your sales or just leave without any idea of a job, do it. If not I do not recommend it. If you want to have a stable job, do not take this. If you value yourself, don't take this.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees that leave behind so much to go work for you. Stop making yourselves believe you are some sort of elite publication when you are exactly the opposite. If you want to get there you have to restructure all your business and be serious. Just room for thought.
