Supermedia is a toxic & miserable environment for sales.

Sales (Former Employee) Lutherville Timonium, MD

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great supervisors - Lack of vision by C-Level Executives

    Manager (Former Employee) DFW, TX

    I worked at Supermedia


    Pros: Family friendly, benefits are OK, comp was OK. Direct supervisors are fair and… Cons: Total lack of communications between Sr. Management and front-line employees. No vision, no plan. Still relying on Yellow Pages… Advice to Senior Management: Get outside the box! Look beyond Yellow Pages, or simply waiting on someone to come buy… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
