I'm looking to start up a new company, but am clueless on which company to pick.

I'm after one that's easy to learn the ropes really. The plan is eventually to get a Rig or TV Station but need something before I invest all my money.

Any ideas?

The most important thing for ranking a company is that your income is greater than what you pay out to employees, that way you continue to grow financially.

Second off, it's better to run a company at 5 stars then to rank one, i'd have to assume you have the money to buy a 5 star company being level 80 and all, i'd hope at least.

I'd recommend a cruiseliner bought at 5 stars. Anyone who didn't read your post or is a dumbass would tell you to just buy a 5 star sweet shop, however you're preparing to run a high end company, and that should be your goal. the best possible preparation you can have to run a rig is to run a cruiseline, or to rank your own but ranking your own is too costly and not worth it. Sweet shops run themselves, 5 star sports teams and furniture, challenging to recruit for but all and all run them selves. cruiseline doesn't run itself and you'll get a taste of how hard companies are to run. you're cruiseline should average at least 5-15m profit a day -preferably averaging 8-10m, after employee wages, try to get one that isn't doing amazing, get one that's doing shitty and fix it up hire for it yourself so you get a taste of how hard companies are for 99% of torn, because most of torn fails at running companies.

edit: if you're really set on ranking a company then just pick one where u minimize the loss of your money, as u will most likely lose money, best for ranking is probably sweet shop, sports team

sweet shop you can probably make money on the resale after ranking it, sports team can probably only break even after you rank, but would yield a decent strength gain it will probably take 2b to rank a company.

i also recommend a cruise line company. it can create a daily profit after wages are considered but competition is hard between tv stations which can afford to pay a bit more for wages and rigs which pay ridiculous amounts for low manual.

(i know manual is irrelevent for cruise liners but most people prefer working in rigs for higher pay)

Personally, I think this is a dangerous time to start a company. Ched has said a Companies 1.5 update will be released prior to Torn 2.0/Respo (which is supposed to be released on Q2 2014). So, it sounds like in the next 6 months a company update will be released. None of us know what that release will contain but we do know the problems with the company system right now and logically a release would seek to solve some of those problems. I would say those problems are that there are too many companies and not enough workers, income is too variable, most types of companies are less than useful as far as benefits and/or income, and companies can't lose stars or go bankrupt regardless of how they are managed. Any fixes to those problems will likely make it very difficult for newer companies. You might be better off picking up a company when people fire sale them after the update.

I ran 3 CLA's before a rig learnt from it well enough to not make any losses so I would also suggest a CLA to get your company knowledge up also you should have Business management complete before running a company in my opinion

Remember stocks you will need/want also

Could still go either way. If ched goes in the direction of increasing benefits (and thus making more companies worthwhile), then company prices could go through the roof. That may very well not be the case, but who knows?

Thanks for your input guys.

You all know what Ched's releases are like... I wouldn't hold my breath for company update.

I just really want one where I can get my knowlege up and making money would be good too I guess so a cruise is appealing.

Thanks again.
