Right, here it is, I am wondering how the EXP works.
So I am thinking, 100 exp is given for all companies in the same category like 1 star companies share 100 exp like is there are 50 1 star companies all of them get 2 exp per day? Obviously the more profit/customers you have give higher or lower %. Or is that what popularity is?
Lets say if its 1.5 popularity does that mean you get 1.5 exp per day then reach rating 2 once you get it to 100?
And this leads me to another question, do 2 star, 3 star etc mean its 200 and 300 exp to get to the next rating?
Only the coders really know how it works. The number of companies at a certain star level affect how quickly a company moves up which is why companies get stuck for a while at 1 star then move to 4 star much easier. How well the company is run affects how fast it moves up. A good manager can take a company from one to five star in 200-250 days. By far the most important input a manager can provide is hiring good employees and firing bad employees.

A good manager can take a company from one to five star in 200-250 days.
this is not the case, many companies can go from 1-5 star in 50 days if run well and many can go from 1-5 star in 1000 days minimum run excellent! you cant put a number of days on companies!
1. you say what company
2. you have run one to 5* as there are different ways to run them with different scenarios!
3. you know how to manage your employees
4. you want to drop incentives to keep active employees
5. daily profit- wages (rumored to affect companies)
6. educations in business management
and thats a small list of things that add or subtract days! ive ran 3 cruises all different! and i can guarantee you its not going to 5* in 200 days

Well its a sweet shop and its rating 2 now and I bet it is rating 3 tomorrow morning.
I was just trying to understand how people pre auction for a 5 star company when its 4 stars and say it will be rating 5 in so many days/weeks
You don't know, it's just people are dumb and believe it. However, it is pretty well known that getting past 1 star is the hardest since it seems that 1 star companies compete with other 1 star companies. Once you hit 2 stars, there is almost always less, and should take less time to get to 3 stars, then 4, and so on to 5 stars...
