    Working at SuperMedia is a "grind," but what else would you expect being in sales.

    I have been working at Supermedia

    Pros

    There is no other type of sales position out there today that will give you as much experience in B2B sales as SuperMedia. The products and services that the company offers is changing everyday to keep up with the ever changing world of advertising and its services. So, your understanding of advertising as a whole will continually grow and expand. It's a true "sales" company, so if you like to sell and you want to get better at it and can deal with the battles of dealing with the "grind," then this job is for you. Like I said, the experience you will gain is incredible. Your selling skills will improve for the better while working here and you will be better for it if you decide to leave later on.

    Cons

    It's tough. The job is not that strategic, although there is a lot of preparation that you will have to do in a limited time that is available. Not only will you be selling, but you will also be processing the accounts (paperwork etc), and that will take some precious selling time away from you. Unless your a single twenty something focused professional and you don't mind working till 9pm every night, you should have no problem. You're also in a constant battle with a expanding advertising world (it's not just the yellow pages out there anymore), and its struggling economy. Your comprehension plan likes to change every year too... one year you make 100k, the next maybe 80k, then the next 85k but sold twice as much as the previous year. There is also a very slim opportunity to grow with a company that is actually shrinking in size (people) and in revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing the comp plans or you're going to lose all of your good sales reps. A good sales rep can get a job somewhere else in any economy.... Just like the in "good times" you should work to keep your good reps.. More money, more trips, more incentives etc... that's how you get people to perform... then you can pay off that debt you owe in no time... stop squeezing it out of our pockets and our support...
