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.

    Former Employee - Senior Inside Sales Executive in Plano, TX

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

    Pros

    At first it was great with what seemed to be a ton of potential, considering that the inside sales team was new and the plan was to grow it quickly. Most of the people that worked there were awesome and very fun to be around. The learning experience is what made my time there well worth it. With so many challenges, both from internal and external sources, I can honestly say that my sales ability has grown by leaps and bounds since working there.

    Cons

    Constantly changing pay structure in ways that keep you from making as much money as you deserve. They also are EXTREMELY corporate which means the decisions being made for the company are made by people who are completely out of touch from what is actually going on, on the ground floor. The management team lacks experience and one in particular has created many problems and she alone have caused several people to quit. Yet they keep her on because she is one of the only female managers. Bad move on their part considering we have lost more people than she is even worth. The turnover is very high and no one really feels like their job is safe. I was consistently one of the top reps in the office and was compensated higher than most, but at the end of the day I still felt completely unappreciated and the compensation did not make up for the poor work environment. This company did not take advantage of the top talent they had, and instead let most of them slip through their fingers as they tried to just hire more and more new people that they could train like little monkeys. Almost all the top producers are no longer there. Also, they arbitrarily raised their prices, so the product was getting harder and harder to sell and harder to justify to clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your team. When you have top talent on your hands, do something to make them feel appreciated and have a reason to stay. Especially if they are one of the only ones bringing in legitimate deals. The people you are focusing your energy on won't make up for the ones you have lost. Don't keep managers around just because they are female. Listen to the feedback of the floor. Don't make SE's who have been there a long time and have a track record of success go through training all over again just because you want the whole floor to start from scratch at your own standards. Taking them off the floor for that hurts company revenue.
