Pros

Decent salary and good people.

The traffic, the ROI for clients, the leadership, the internal communication, the overall strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to fully bake and market a product before throwing it against the wall to see if it will stick. Hire real pros to manage sales people with real understanding.

    Cons

    toxic work environment
    their core advertising does not work for the customers

    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!
