    I didn't think companies like this still existed

    Pros

    Unless you are directly making the company money you can pretty much just get on with it, safe in the knowledge that no one cares what you're up to.

    Cons

    If you like sexism, lower than average salaries, being shushed by senior members of staff and given a 'warning' for voicing concerns over COVID safety in the office, 30 minute lunch breaks, absolutely no career progression, and arhiac and controlling policies such as no coats on the back of chairs, and monitored visits to the kitchen and bathrooms, then this is the place for you.

    Pros

    Honestly nothing run as far and as fast as you can

    Cons

    This is seriously one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. The nepotism is real, the ceo Miskesh was handed the job which is obvious in the way that he has no experience running a company and seems to lack common social skills. There’s a man that works under him who is honestly a total perv and knows he can’t get pretty women in real life so he hires pretty young assistants and sexually harasses them. In fact I’m not sure why he doesn’t have a dozen law suits but rumour has it there was a pay out . They lie to customers and cheat them out of their money ( I know I used to have to deal with refunds . They actually had someone die on a tour and continued it LOL. They have this lady called nono who really is a piece of work totally unprofessional and blames everyone for her mistakes. I’m going to say NO to that. Also they were sued for bullying a member of staff in my time there but that wasn’t the first and last time. Says it all really.
