  1. Be careful of who you work for, Totally micromanaged, down to call cold, door knocking by the hour.

    Pros

    Generous health insurance and dental benefits. Good 401K, sales job with a salary, benefits, and expenses, opportunties to transfer to other areas of the country if that is of interest. Will hire people without a college degree.

    Cons

    Company's flagship product, Verizon Yellow Pages, is a contracting, dying product, so every day is like musical chairs, except it is with your job. Advancement opportunties almost always meaning moving to another market. A major job of sales is to avoid being negative in sales, but the bulk of sales is in a dying product. They do have a set of nice online packages, but many other businesses are doing similar things. They are in the process of merging with Dex Media and have recently closed several offices in Florida with little notice. It is a really tough sale.

    Advice to Management

    If your goal is to push people out, then you are achieving it successfully. Some bosses are good and knowledgeable, others are useless. Four managers in our office left (quit or transferred) to avoid upper management's negative, bullying attitude.


  2. Once great but economy and public's preference has had an impact
