Supermedia (now Dex Media Inc)....The most intense cold calling job Ever!

Media Consultant (Current Employee)

Pros(1) Intense initial sales training (8 weeks). This is the place to learn: how to sell, the selling process and to fine-hone your selling skills. If you can sell at this company for at least 6 months, you can sell successfully in any industry.
(2) Unbelievable product portfolio. Probably one of the best in the industry
(3) Great place to get your feet wet in sales.
(4) If you can survive at least 1 year, you will start to inherit higher $$$ accounts as a result of turnover

Cons(1) Bizarre management styles
(2) Not forthcoming during hiring process
(3) Constant threats of termination
(4) Unrealistic goal setting
(5) Very, very low team morale
(5) Not a place to build a career

Advice to Senior ManagementAt this time, this is a "stop-over" type of company with great products and sales training. Quality reps with serious career interests will work here for a short period of time to develop strong selling skills and afterwards, move on to a stronger structured organization. However, for retention purposes, try hiring recent college grads. They appreciate having a job, you can tell them anything, offer them the current low base salaries and you can run them into the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
