Good first job, but not a good place for a career

ProsGood initial training
Real possibility to make a lot of money
Culture can be fun - but very male-oriented

ConsTrapped in a monthly cycle
Never make as much as they promise you
Management shuffles are constantly occurring
Plateau after 6 months, very little development after that.
Huge Attrition rate of staff (circa 60% a year in some teams)

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees more
Give a new strategy a little time before changing again.
Implement a real quarter by quarter career development plan

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
