    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Yellowpages provides good benefits, 401k matching, and other opportunities that working for a large company can afford an employee. My experience with senior management has been excellent.

    Cons

    It obviously has a very corporate structure; mandatory trainings throughout the year. It is also difficult to be promoted within the company in non-engineering positions.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for promotion; provide direction and possible avenues for career growth. Better communication about company policy and trainings that make sense to employees' jobs.


  2. Interesting, challenging work. Great potential, but bogged down by history, legacy systems, & bureaucracy.
