I worked at ReachLocal full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Product had the "wow" factor, Uncapped commissions, Make your own schedule, Unlimited Vacation Days, FREEDOM

Cons

To much freedom, not a 40, 50, 60 hour a week job, The smaller the account the more work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I loved working their. I wish I didn't have to leave, but the numbers are what they are.

    Pros

    Product does work, they treat their employees well and overall this could be a good job

    Cons

    Chur! Most accounts and employees churn.The training is lousy and even though you spend a week in Dallas it does not scratch the surface on how the products work.. It will take years to make the kind of money they talk about and in fact the only ones making money where I use to work were the old timers who would inherit accounts or who were on the managers good side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new IMC's, let them shadow senior member to learn the products and sales cycle. Stop playing favorites.

    I have been working at ReachLocal full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with ReachLocal for the past 19 months and can say without hesitation that joining the RL team has been one of the best career decisions I have make in my life. I have been in the workforce for 16 years and it is refreshing to work for a company that does not set limits on what an employee can do. ReachLocal is the place to work if you want to be a part of building something.

    Cons

    As a young company, many of the processes and procedures have not been created or launched. Building processes, procedures, leaders, and a global company, all at the same time, is hard work. It can be very frustrating to constantly be building, testing, and revising. But, the end result will be worth the frustrations. ReachLocal is still finding its way but is determined to make a great impact in online marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on core elements. Challenge your leaders more, especially the young ones.
