Media Manager (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

I worked at YPM

ProsIf you enjoy data-entry, micro-management and have no marketing/advertising experience, then this would be a fit.

ConsDon't let the Media Manager title be misleading. The role consists primarily of data-entry and clerical work for the yellow pages, and you are micro-managed through it all. The training program is not effective and management has no trust for the people they lead. Be prepared to have all of your work and email communication checked by your manager prior to completing anything on your own, or for things they really don't trust you on, management will have to do it for you. The company's policy's are very old-fashion and inflexible - don't plan on having access to the outside world during the hours of 8AM - 5 PM (cell phones are not allowed). And although the Media Manager role is an exempt position, your time is managed as if you were a non-exempt employee. Would not recommend this role unless you are truly looking for an entry-level position.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis is an entry-level role, hire people who are truly entry-level. Trust the people who work for you. Review your company policies....we are in the year 2011.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Revolving Door

Media Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at YPM full-time for more than a year

ProsGood for entry level career only

ConsThis company follows unethical business practices. It's a family owned private business so they get away with everything. It is impossible to reach the top. They are discriminating towards the appearance of their staff. The majority of employees hired are inexperienced and uneducated. Only a selective few are actually competent.. The owners like to follow a "cost effective" strategy when it comes to their employees, so don't expect to be compensated highly. The pockets of the owners always stay full. The industry is going downhill and will likely disappear. The staff is like a revolving door and turnover is high.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
