    I have been working at Supermedia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good, commission not bad and my co-workers are great.

    Cons

    Management (well really one) is the worst micromanager I have ever seen. There is no support from managers. They love to tell us what to do, lyrics to use but couldn't sell ice cubes to an Eskimo. Phone book is dead and too late for Internet world. Can't sell a product if you know it doesn't work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why don't you ever listen to the MC's when we complain about our bosses or anything. Do you really think that 5 people quit in 4 months and all had the same thing to say and of course nothing was done. Have Management on the phones selling too. They did it 10 years ago but have no clue whats it like calling someone asking them to advertise. Practice what you preach.
