    Former Employee - Search Marketing Consultant in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great company culture- young, smart people hungry for success. Fun perks like free snacks and company outings, and a fun work environment. Training is very robust, and coworkers are eager to help new employees get on board. Great place to get your foot in the door in digital marketing (but not if your too experienced). My managers were really supportive and great career coaches.

    Cons

    While management preaches a mission that is built around honesty, work ethic and putting the client first- they only really care about making money at the client's expense. The main product we sell- an SEM bidding algorithm- doesn't perform for the majority of our clients, mainly because we accept tiny budgets and niche businesses that paid search simply isn't right for.

    Therefore if you are client facing role, be prepared to be cursed out on a daily basis from angry business owners wanting their money back. You end up feeling like a scam artist conning people out of their money instead of a marketing professional, and if you bring up any suggestions on how to make the structure better to actually help our clients, you are reprimanded for being "negative" or ignored. My team saw a 15 person turn over within one calender year...TWICE. You'll be pressured to work holidays like Thanksgiving, and forget about having a manageable work load. You'll be slammed with 200+ screaming angry clients you're forced to speak to regularly. Despite pulling from top tier universities, search consultant roll is basically a call center, where you are forced to read off scripts or get reprimanded. They don't want you to use your brain, just parrot the same script over and over again until the client cancels.

    If considering a client facing role at Yodle, get ready to be miserable and acquire a drinking habit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the silly internal rewards and accolades. Pay your employees better to take on the onslaught of angry client complaints and retain talent. Actually listen to your employee feedback instead of ignoring it to make money. Stop promoting people to managerial positions simply because they've stayed for 3+ years, and hire managers that know how to manage and motivate their team. Don't just preach your values, practice them. Stop lying to your employees saying things will get better, new more experienced people will be hired and that your work load will become more manageable only to completely do the opposite. Until your employees actually trust management, you won't be able to keep your talent.
