I worked at Idearc Media full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits package, some flexibility in hours. Was able to get a signing bonus

Cons

Very high sales quotas, win at all costs mentality, lots of red-tape. High turn over in sales positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reasonable quotas would go a long ways to retaining employees.

    Pros

    I cannot think of one "pro" for this company. From the start this company was a sinking ship, until they got de-listed from the stock market and had to change names.

    Cons

    Management and higher leadership positions do not know or care what bottom or even mid-level employees are doing, and manage from the top-down, not caring how or what it affects outside of their own limited view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some leadership education.

    Pros

    pay structure was decent. and you were given a fair ammount of leads and prior advertisers to work with.

    Cons

    very poor management with no support or room for growth. also no support for the advertising and branding of our product. just getting it acknowledged was an up hill battle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support and work with your reps
