    I worked at Lycamobile full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have no pros for Lycamobile!

    Cons

    Company Does not have strategy. Management team is very poor in quality. Everything has to be signed by Chairman office, these people do not understand business skills. Everything takes a long time and sometimes there is never a response. This is reason that nothing gets completed, they make you stand outside an office waiting like children many times for approval on everything, even small things. Sometimes you wait hours. There is zero flexibility, attendance and time keeping is very strict like being at nursery school. You have to eat lunch between 1pm and 2pm, you cannot choose. You are only allowed 3 days for sickness each year, more than this and your pay will receive deduction. Before you join they make many promises for bonus and flexibility but these things did not happen for me or for many of my colleagues. They don’t even tell you what your objective is. CEO hides in his office, he is invisible I heard him make only one communication to people in one year. I do not know what he does but he is not like any CEO I have worked for before. Nobody knows how the business is doing, this is kept a secret. There is no trust. Management team often drink alcohol in office and are drunk they are not professional people. I would not recommend this place to anybody.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are already in the process of changing the entire approval system which will reduce the need for physical approvals, this will ensure that the process is a lot more efficient and will reduce the turn around time for most authorisations and approvals. We are also making a lot of internal changes within the certain departments to ensure performance, and development will be prioritised with increased transparent communication to all levels within the business.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company

    Cons

    If you enjoy being treated like cattle and having to punch in before 9 am and punch out after 6 pm then this is the place to work. Senior Management does not speak english well and they love to get all the men in a room and drink whisky and tequila several times a month. The GM has been known to get very drunk and abusive to employees during normal business hours. This is a very sad place to work.

    Pros

    no pros, is not even a job...run away as quick as possible

    Cons

    The company is run like in the middle age, with slaves and masters. Feel like if you get your salary with 20 days delay or not at all. .No management,no strategy, just a king/god with some slaves working for him .Nothing is done according to lwas or regulations.Staff is spied with camera everywhere against any privacy law. Cannot believe such Company could still exist in 2016.No respect for any human being. To progress in the careers you must be Tamil and relative of the owner. Hundreds of relatives are employeed , doing nothing and getting higher salaries. Middle management is scared to tell the true to the owner so nothing is changing and he believe to run an happy family..

    I have been working at Lycamobile full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no Pros to working for this company. Well, maybe only one they do provide you with a car for Hot Spot Sales Employee's during the last couple of months before we had to ride the bus all over Los Angeles.

    Cons

    This company is horrible they have no idea what they are doing in the Los Angeles market. The product is below industry standards and they send their employee's out to battle a war with no weapons. They treat their employee's poorly, do not pay them will and promise them commissions that we never see. They expect the cell phone stores to do their job of brand awareness. They have no management skills, they treat women a second class citizens and have they have created a very hostile working environment.
