Pros

Use to be one of the best companies to work for when it was NYNEX, and progressively got worse; Bell Atlantic, Verizon, Idearc Media, and then Supermedia. Benefits were great at one point, and pay/compensation was great. I was fortunate and was able to retire early with pension still in tact.

Cons

Micro managed to a ridiculous point. More interested in selling the "flavor of the day" than what is best for the customer. New hires get it worse than veterans. Industry is perceived as dying, and internet products are not as well received.

Advice to Management

More detailed reports that are factual for customers and sales reps to believe in for internet products. Partner with Google because that is what the customer wants!

    Pros

    Benefits, friendly co-workers, & earning potential*. I say earning potential with an asterisk because there's a chance for good earnings but you must know how to work the system and have extensive sales skills.

    Cons

    Lack of future vision, bad upper management, & bad online product value for clients. Yellow pages work for some but not for most anymore. I can't remember over the last 10 years actually using a phone book. Other ad firms are taking over digitally and Supermedia is falling drastically. Customer service it at a all time low and customers are dropping out YOY.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new online technology. For starters: How about real SEO, Mobile ads, and CMS websites for clients.

  2. Good training good benefits and perks
