    I worked at George S. May full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company, when it was founded had great leadership and a great model. They systematic approach to getting business owners to comply with proven systems is very effective and the right thing. I truly enjoyed the job as a business analyst until I was promoted to senior executive and saw what was really going on.

    Cons

    Brutal and course communication. F that and f this heard a lot on the executive floor. The executive and the board of directors basically bled the company of every last cent and stole from business owners that really need their help. It turned out to be a complete racket and I couldn't stand being there another minute. I really loved the job and the mission I bought into, but the truth was far from that. The leaders of GSM International should be put on trial for the unethical and and sometimes unlawful practices. In my humble opinion, I could be completely wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors before you are arrested.
