    I worked at VMR Consultants full-time

    Pros

    - Met some great people - Made me realise that if I can work there... I can work anywhere

    Cons

    Everything else. Worked here for a year and ended up leaving due to mental health The boss does not care about you in the slightest makes you work ridiculous hours for minimum wage doing the job of atleast three people. Was screamed at and made to feel like a bad employee for wanting to actually go home three hours after I was meant to. If you have mental health issues you basically get told to get over it and smile or get out... glad I finally got out.

    Pros

    It's pretty funny when you leave to come back and read these reviews. Its even funnier when you find out old springtastic is paying people to leave fake good reviews. I remember back in the day there was a marketing girl who used to spend all day (on the bosses instructions) creating fake accounts on here to leave good reviews and flag the true ones. Everyone used to fake all their activities which was always quite hilarious as the CEO was so numbers focused he used to spend all his spare time creating spreadsheets about the numbers which are not real.

    Cons

    Honestly read the other reviews what can I say that has not been said. You will be micromanaged and treated like an absolute child. The second I resigned from this horrible place my colleague at the time looked at me and said you look so much happier, then he went and resigned as well. There is in fact only 1 problem with this place, the owner, otherwise it would have been okay. But he patrols the office like one of the dementors of Azkhaban sucking the happiness from every single person. You are forced to call the same people every day if they don't answer you call again 3 times. You also must call from private number. (Otherwise you get sacked) also if you leave on time during contracted hours you get sacked.

    Pros

    Cant think of many. They have a decent customer base maybe is one.

    Cons

    Poor people management. You get told that you will be fired at least 3 times a week. Staff retention is shocking. Numbers are dropping in the company weekly. No one is happy. Everyone wants to leave.
