    I have been working at YP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    4 years later, still going strong, turning down SIlicon Valley recruiters on a weekly basis. Word among the recruiters is that they need to "pluck" people away from YP, A LOT of whom have served their previous DIGIAL ADVERTISING employers with distinction. A fair amount of managers at YP believe very strongly in a work-life balance and are willing to allow telecommuting, and flexible-hours capability: seek them out! HR and Facilities are working together to revamp the benefits, perks, and work environment - this is not your grandpa's YellowPages, and certainly not AT&T!

    Cons

    This is a big enough company - has its share of politics and favoritism. If you are initially unlucky to land in a "less than desirable" spot, worry not - soon enough several opportunities will arise internally allowing you to explore other avenues (provided, of course, you are good, and managers on both side of the transaction agree).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the business owners, engineering managers, and product developers even more autonomy. Don't just NOT PUNISH risk-taking, in fact, ENCOURAGE & REWARD it (therein lies a message about risk-taking for you too); talk about what YP learned as a company from FAILED projects & initiatives. Executives need to focus ALL of their efforts on the following three - in that order:
    1. SALES EMPLOYEES (more/higher/faster incentives for doing the right thing)
    2. NON-SALES EMPLOYEES
    3. CUSTOMERS (Why are customers #3, you ask? Because they are #1 on the list for SALES & NON-SALES employees!)
