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

Pros

Casual dress. Benefits are cheap. Free parking.

Cons

Read the positive reviews with a grain of salt. Then head over and look at the stock and how it has performed. Now go back and read those great reviews. Yes, in fact, they are written by the recruiters whose job it is to convince you to work there.

Now go to Linkedin and look at all the former employees. Email them to get the true story.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try being honest. It will be something you are very uncomfortable with and you will get a strange sensation when doing it.

    Pros

    Company Culture and don't work weekends.

    Cons

    Small pay for new sales, training as been switched 4 times in the last 3 months. Just laid off 30 of 50 people inside sales and called it a firing for performance. VP Mesha said there shouldn't be a quota the first 3 months on the desk and didn't honor her words.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying.

    I worked at Reachlocal full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are now paying people with no experience and no idea what they are doing nearly 6 figures. Take it while you can! A ton of employees are collecting more than 6 figures and not working while they save, party, and wait for the ride to end before having to look for something else. You can't beat that.

    Cons

    Product is over priced. So clients that pay attention leave pretty quickly, this is why no one who knows what they are doing puts a family or friend on the platform. Instead they manage campaigns separately either for free or pocket money on the side.
    If you are in Florida you can't get ahead without........... "sucking up"
    If you are new no one is going to help you, as old veterans used to just get you fired and take your clients (sometimes fought over them). Now as a glorified account managers you can sit back and relax collecting a decent paycheck. The compensation isn't what it used to be but there is no point in leaving since another job would mean having to care about the job and actually work. There is some clear favoritism so if you are already friends with one of the managers or one of the managers that came over (who is left) you might be able to move up quickly. The other cool thing is if you can make it a few months there is job security, because they messed up so bad before they cant fire us vets!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck! figure out what you are doing yet? Want to be telemarketers like Yodle? Used car sales people like Yellow pagers? I guess the bottom line is Take a job here at your own risk!
