    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time

    Pros

    - Smart and dedicated people in many parts of the organization
    - Lean and committed at the project level
    - Beginning to make strides toward continuous improvement organizationally
    - Friendly and collegiate working environment

    Cons

    - Has not demonstrated ability to adjust strategy for long-term growth
    - Too much reliance on opinions of a few to make important decisions.
    - Needs a more formalized path to promotion for high potential employees
    - Lacks diversification, especially at the top
    - Lots of collateral damage internally from history of management and employee churn

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw out the status quo. Ask more questions. Use data to drive decision-making. Reward those who push the limits and forge new paths.

    I worked at Local Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Local Corporation

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
