    Pros

    That Tony Van Eyk doesn't look too bad at the first sight. He explains pretty clearly the concept of his company and makes people looks comfortable.

    Cons

    It starts first with the receptionist that keep talking loudly about her dog while the phone is ringing. Then you realise that there is NO career opportunities and that they are only looking for backpackers to run the streets and ask people for their money.
    No life balance as you are working from 9am to 7pm but are pay like you're working from 9am to 5pm.

  3. "Wouldn't work there ever again"

    I have been working at van Eyk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gain exposure to some of the best managers in the market. Great for networking within the industry. Can work fairly autonomously. Staff are overall fairly bright and motivated.

    Cons

    Lacks leadership and direction. Pays poorly, no career prospects.

    Advice to Management

    Hand over the reigns to people who know what they are doing. Listen to your employees, they know what is happening at the ground level. Retain good staff get rid of the politicians.
