    I worked at Supermedia full-time for 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.
