    Good and Bad

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFor the most part it's very flexible and decent work/life balance. And with a few exceptions, most of the people I work with are good people - not all, but most. The absolute only reason I stay is the flexibility.

    ConsLimited growth opportunities. Horrible benefits. No yearly reviews - which means no raises. Some people seem checked out and just going through the motions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet on board with normal corporate standards. I have never worked for a company who's CEO states in Town Hall meetings (on more than one occasion) that "We don't do reviews". If you think it's time for a raise, you have to beg your manager. That is ridiculous. If you want to keep people and reduce turnover - give us incentive to want to stay. Regular reviews. Standard pay increases. Decent 401k. This is a job, not a career.

    Good people - management needs to take care of the workers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood people, and technology - email industry is consolidating, you must have expertise in several areas. Data and big data technology could help their position.

    Conswillingness to change, look at new technology and marketing methods. Leverage the good resources you have (the people). Yesmail has had several re-org's in the past but i'm not sure if just changing management is the answer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Yesmail is a mixed bag

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are many friendly individuals and there can be opportunities to learn and grow.

    ConsThe company doesn't seem to have clear career path for most departments. New management is not people focused and seems struggling to turn around the last few years of bad numbers and client losses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that while work is a reciprocal agreement to exchange services, a company needs to reciprocate with more than just a salary. Things like mentoring, career advancement, training, trust etc. are required to retain the best and the brightest.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Currently weird, but probably better than it used to be

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsThe people are great, the work/life balance is excellent, and I've learned a lot in my time here. I've been exposed to a fair number of technologies that I'd never worked with before.

    ConsLet's face it, no one is excited about e-mail marketing (AKA spam). You'll also find yourself supporting lots of crappy legacy code. And developers have to work two-week support rotations where you're on call 24/7 (although thankfully, off-hours calls are fairly rare).

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement could very easily improve morale by making pay and benefits more competitive.

    Yesmail Great Place to Work, Infogroup not so much

    Account Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYesmail is an innovated company, really trying to push their products and employees to the next level. Everyone is very competent and great to work with.

    ConsThe sister companies under Infogroup, that Yesmail works with are, are bloated with inefficiencies. These teams need to be modified to match the pace the online marketing space demands.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. Yesmail is a great place to work for and moving in a great direction. Hopefully the sister companies won't bring this burgeoning company down.

     

    Really solid people, wacky management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBrilliant, fun people
    Great locations
    Flexible work accommodations

    ConsHorrible benefits
    Owned by multiple levels of corporate greed and mismanagement
    Average pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementWell, you can't do anything because your hands are tied. Perhaps relieve a few layers of executive staff? Focus on the winners, maybe?
