Former Employee - Software Engineer VI Analysis and Prog in Dallas, TX

I worked at Supermedia full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Salary and benefits
Yearly bonus and raise
Nice co-workers
Facility is nice with a pond and walking trails

Cons

Shrinking business and revenue.
Printed yellow page ads still the biggest source of revenue and digital products not growing as fast as print is losing revenue.
If you are in IT, find some place else, as IT is regarded as Sales support.

    I have been working at Supermedia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great training, great salaries. Room for advancement and career paths. Sales people are given accounts to grow. Moving in to digital media and trialing new products and solutions. Multiple departments available for employment.

    Cons

    Large company who is struggling to redefine itself. Senior leaders not always aligned. Trying to shake the legacy that the company is founded on - which is yellow pages advertising. Sales Managers skills are varied. Too much work and not enough talent to get it done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align mission and slow down to execute things right -- not fast. Communicate more. Coach managers out who are not competent.

    I have been working at Supermedia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    High Earnings, Flexible Schedule, Tremendous Front line sales experience - if you can sell here you can sell anywhere

    Cons

    Company revenue decline due to inability to transition from print to digital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something and do it fast - sales are soooo hard to come by cause we haven't developed a product to replace print.
