    Lycamobile Response

    June 26, 2020HR Manager

    Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the Friday food and drink while you were with us! We are sorry you feel the way you do, the senior team, including the chairman, play an active role in building and developing the company with the passion and drive they exude daily.

    Pros

    You can meet great people, from all over the world

    Cons

    This is the worst company I've worked for so far. I don't even know where to start. Rasism against white people. Literally. I have never seen anything like this. They will not promote anyone who is white except situations when they really don't have a choice. For example, they have a group of Sri Lankans they made them Product Managers. Guys have no clue what is happening, 0 knowledge about their own product. But the most important thing they speak Tamil , rest doesn't matter. They pay less than any other company in the UK! Thy pay peanuts and me personally I had no salary review for 2 years even though I had more and more responsibilities. If you are lucky and they promote you, the probation period is endless. And you may get £60 more after 6 months. Cameras are everywhere. Absolutely everywhere.One is in front of the entrance to the ladies toilette. This company is not only in the UK they have several CC around the world. Usually abroad they don't pay people on time so whoever is there to represent the company gets incredible amount of sh** from people because they think they are also responsible for lack of salaries on their account. When you travel they pay you £15 a day and this huge amount needs to cover transportation, food (sometimes you are lucky if they book you bed and breakfast), and phone. Seriously. £15 a day. If you had any additional expenses you have to wait for 6 months for company to give you money back and you still have no guarantee they will. Sometimes they don't pay for rented flats, hotels on time and ask employees to cover one or two nights by themselves because they have no budgets, so for every single penny they need a sign off. From the whole senior management ! it takes ages! People with no experience, with no skills are being promoted because they are friends with someone who can influence management decisions. They don't invest in employees so if you are looking for career development or any additional courses or training, forget it. Every Friday they organise drinks and food for their stuff but only for certain people Team Leaders or agents are not allowed. Also you have to queue for food and if you are white you will get your portion after all Sri Lankans. Management is drunk almost every day. Many times I met people who smelled like a bottle of vodka and couldn't even pronounce the company's name. At the beginning they were inviting weird looking ladies from outside of the company but have to admit last time I've seen it it was more than a year ago. I think the Chairman is a genius who's surrounded by wrong people. For 2 years I haven't met anyone who's not looking for another job. Good experts are coming and leaving after a week or two. If you want to work in the positive environment, if you are looking for a long term career development, if you want to achieve something it's not a right place for you.

    "WORST COMPANY DONT WASTE YOUR TIME"

    I have been working at Lycamobile

    Pros

    Free food and drinks on Fridays.

    Cons

    I will keep it short this is the worst company I've worked for. They're so unorganised, sly and they don't provide any type of training it's the worst company. No growth possibility unless you speak Tamil of course. Be ready to be out looked and feel less worthy when all the managers speak their language in front of you and the HR instead of being there for their employees all they do is to make it worser and if they don't like you they will bully you until you leave!! I left myself because of that this company may be big and global however it's not the place to work. Just read all the previous comments...

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

    Pros

    just the colleagues, better to work for a fast food.

    Cons

    The worst company for which you can work: Dirty call center, ants on the desks, all weekend working, lights not working, an unbelievable bathroom break of 10 minutes for a day of 9 hours of work, if you delay 2 minutes from the bathroom will be incident!!!! ... Mass Layoffs by email (do not even have the courage to tell you in person). The worst experience of my life there are no words to describe the inefficiency and absurdity of this place.
