I have been working at Dex Media full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay was great if you were a top performer and I was. Going on trips and making nice bonuses. Some really talented people have come in and out! I did have a good manager, who worked hard to offset the crazy culture within the office.

Cons

When this Dex was Super Media, it was a crazy awful place to work. Not 1, Not 1 of my 30 plus training class still works there. Most of the "office managers" could not sell life to a dying man, and God knows how they got in there positions. I worked 12 hour days routinely. 30% of my time was actually selling while 70% was computer work and scheduling. Just crazy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop planting fake good reviews on these sites. I'm not buying most of these. Try hard to keep good people. Find away to let them sell! Change the culture! Realize that you it's not just about the dying print product, it's about a dying morale that if changes could revitalize some of your print dollars. Realize that the failures of your sales teams to meet goals are just as much your failures!

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Nice Co-workers This is a company where we meet with small business to medium business owners and help them with their online marketing and print marketing. You learn alot about every industry around. The knowledge you will get out of this job is huge.

    Cons

    This job is very hard and demanding. You must like a challenge. Its changeing daily. Customers are challengeing as everyone sells internet now days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales has to much to do. Find a way to make sales job easier and maybe they can find time to sell. You ask the impossible. Generate leads to sales that are already warm and see if you can simplify the paperwork. Also need better support
