Good gig if you're under 30 or never worked in Sales. If not, run in the other direction - quickly!!!!

I worked at Supermedia full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Good health benefits from day 1
- 8 week training salary in addition to your regular salary
- Good mileage reimbursement

Cons

- The kings of micro-managing. You will be monitored every hour of the day. You will have team meetings EVERY day, regardless of where you commute from and what territory you're covering.
- Most of the managers are in desperate need of management training program.
- Majority of the customers hate the company, and a quite a few will do anything to avoid meeting with you at renewal time (how's that for customer relations?!?)
- Bloated income expectations (you'll hear all about the the reps who make $100k plus (Don't believe the hype, as that is less than 20% company wide and most of them have been there over a decade)
- Paperwork and systems are horrendous. I've been in Sales for 20+ years and never worked for a company with such horrible back office systems.
- Admin support is hit or miss.
- If you believe nothing I say, do your homework. Read the news, connect with employees on Linked In or Facebook. Caveat emptor!

    Pros

    IT shop has a lot of highly skilled and motivated employees

    Cons

    Silos were strong when I worked there. Lots of changes have happened since I left, so culture could be very different.
