Supermedia is a toxic & miserable environment for sales.

I worked at Supermedia

Pros

You can realistically make 100k if you work hard every day which includes making lots of cold calls & working evenings.

Cons

The hardest part of a sales job typically is making a sale. It is hard to sell advertising but Supermedia makes it very hard to do almost anything. They will make you document every cold call, walk in, customer presentation you make. A sales rep is given so much administrative stuff to do that its hard to find time to cold call. If you want to be successfull you'll need to work long hours to accomplish all the admin tasks they give you along with making sales. You always feel like you're in trouble & in a lot of cases you are. Not a fun place to work & going downhill quickly as most of the company is tied up in the print yellow pages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to top reps because a lot of things upper management comes up with doesn't make sense & a top rep would tell you exactly that.

    I worked at Supermedia

    Pros

    Family friendly, benefits are OK, comp was OK. Direct supervisors are fair and up front with employees. Fitness center at DFW location makes working out easy.

    Cons

    Total lack of communications between Sr. Management and front-line employees. No vision, no plan. Still relying on Yellow Pages to carry the company. Have missed numerous opportunities to capitalize on great new online products. Failed every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get outside the box! Look beyond Yellow Pages, or simply waiting on someone to come buy the company. COMMUNICATE with employees and most importantly listen when they try to bring new ideas.

    Upper management is very humane and motivating, it is a challenging career for those who like to focus.

    I have been working at Supermedia

    Pros

    They are always working to be the leaders in the industry. They are always changing for the good of customers; and to provide a superior product. Those who cannot keep up with change do belong in this industry. Change is necessary.

    Cons

    Travel is hard for those with children. Travel is necessary to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I no longer work for super media due to the necessity to travel, but I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this company. They have outstanding upper management.
