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

Pros

decent pay and commission
nice work location
cheap vending machines
good company perks like food and company outings

Cons

toxic work environment
their core advertising does not work for the customers
you are trained to lie to customers and prospects everyday
you are constantly micro managed on your sales style even though the problem is the product does not work
they will fire you in an instant no matter what your work history has been

Advice to ManagementAdvice

not much they are bleeding out the business as long as they can...there is no core product for this company aside from redirecting traffic off yahoo and google over to local.com

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people in management are not the best people for the job. Its a tough world, but only the strong survive and the weak need to see the door. Reward the those who strive for excellence, work hard, and have the insight and competence to make this company growth stronger. Reward the people who working to make this company better!

    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Positive environment, ability to succeed, plenty of support and coaching, and some perks that make hard, earnest work pretty enjoyable.

    Cons

    I think the best improvement would be, of course, a higher percentage of quality leads, but the leads are plentiful so lots of calling is absolutely essential to succeed, and you'll know that going in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and always add advice as soon as needed when listening to calls, it helps the success-curve dramatically.
