    GannettLocal is a great place for young sales professionals

    Sales (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGannettLocal has undergone a complete overhaul in the past year. New management, new sales team, new vision and goals.

    - Fun environment with a lot of young sales professionals
    - Monthly sales contests that make it possible to make a lot of money through spiffs
    - Solid starting salary plus unlimited potential for commission with a tiered structure
    - Driven management team with a clear vision for growth in mind
    - Backing of Gannett, giving immediate credibility to our division
    - Agency feel within a very large company

    Cons- Still behind in terms of providing solid sales tools in terms of current client proof of performance, case studies, etc.
    - Technology and equipment is outdated (computers, phones, chairs, etc.)
    - Massive growth divided teams between three separate offices making it difficult to build a consistent culture

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work towards providing sales teams with more tools to make the sale easier

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
