Pros
  • Local Corporation has strong work-life balance and benefits (in 6 reviews)

  • Very family oriented company, good pay at all levels from what I hear, alot of internal promotions lately (in 5 reviews)

Cons
  • The company's "co-operatition"model with the major search engines puts the company in a fraught and vulnerable position (in 2 reviews)

  • All of their businesses units face intense competition and core revenue streams are highly dependent on the major search companies (in 4 reviews)

    Pros

    Smart and friendly people work here.

    Cons

    This company runs on internal politics. Revenues have continued to decrease over the last 2 years with little direction on their next move. Quarterly lay-offs are standard. Stock price and morale is at an all time low.

    Pros

    Great team, nice employee perks such as the holiday party

    Cons

    Not enough technical resources, not proactive in preventing revenue affected products.

    Advice to Management

    There are more managers getting hired when they should be hiring more developers, engineers, and programmers to help improve the product. Test a product before launching it to the public and focus on improving products that have been working for the company.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Nice offices. Professional environment. Good pay. Fun picnics and Christmas parties. The CEO cares about the employees.

    Cons

    No growth. Existing ad business shrinking. Overall, poor leadership from COO. Poor execution with acquired companies. Missed opportunity with Screamin' Daily Deals.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a new idea for the company, or go back to serving SMBs. Krillion is probably not the answer.

    Pros

    Decent salary and good people.

    Cons

    The traffic, the ROI for clients, the leadership, the internal communication, the overall strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to fully bake and market a product before throwing it against the wall to see if it will stick. Hire real pros to manage sales people with real understanding.
