I worked at Supermedia full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Benefits. Thats it. Oh, and nice kitchen

Cons

I could write a book but: Bad Business, Super Micro Managemet, horrible managers, the worst pay, just a bad company all around, never worked so hard for so little money, they will burn you out, thankless job, the paperwork is ungodly, they treat business owners like a slab of meat. I feel bad for the business owners

Advice to ManagementAdvice

take a management course, read a book, get a clue

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation compared to other ad sales jobs locally.
    Initial training. Paid. training and trainers are fabulous.
    Pushing digital products now, but late to the game.
    Co-workers.
    Phone support when you have an issue was awesome!
    Office support people were extremely helpful, thanks!
    Many businesses in my areas profit from their investment and value it.
    40 hour work weeks.
    Freedom and independence allowed by my manager.

    Cons

    Old school motivation from senior regional management.

    Some local management styles. Some cannot manage or coach people effectively. Ask your potential manager their management style before you accept a position. Run from any hint of a style contrary to your needs and likes. (True everywhere.)

    Declining core product. But evolving other digital product sales opps (see Pros) might save the day.

    Make sure you like the one call, no relationship selling. Work new clients every year and lose out on the consistency many clients would enjoy.

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good if you lack ethics! From the 2 month brainwashing, I mean training to the "do whats right for the customer" but sell them what we tell you to, it is a Hypocritical sinking ship.

    Cons

    Management lie to the employees going as far as creating bogus surveys & hiding the real ones showing how unhappy everyone really is. The company was a good one when it was Verizon, & even in the Idearc years it wasn't a bad place to work, but as the massive decline in yellowpage use occurs, the requirements & workload go up while decreasing your pay & benefits. I was a top performer & saw my annual pay decrease 20% each year over the last 4 years. Benefits are awful though they promise you the world. Management also covers up physical abuse & sexual harassment of employees. If you talk, you lose your job, so most good people quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stay on your ship so you an go down with it. Bon Voyage, & stop taking hard working small business' money. This program made me give you 1 star.
