I worked at YP full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

friendly work environment if you have a hands off manager. Made lifetime friends. Really good insurance. Not too much travel.

Cons

waay too much nepotism and good ole boy syndrome. Managers even upper management that were not good at sales. Didn't support sales reps enough. Antiquated equipment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

change hiring practices. Not diverse enough in outside sales. Hired too many friends and cousins......

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at YP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    nobody is working that awfully hard, so you can take it pretty easy and survive; pay is not that bad; Glendale is a pretty easy commute from much of valleys

    Cons

    since no one is working that hard, or is that ambitious here, it's hard to do anything interesting or challenging (i.e. don't expect to be rewarded for pushing the envelope)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a clue - instead of being enamored by outside consultants (like Altman Villandrie) that charge hundreds of thousands to tell you what your best employees already know (wow, your most popular categories are also the most under-monetized - no one caught that before!), try to reward the few people in the company that are striving to make a difference. It's way to easy to get ahead in this company by being a great a**-kisser.

    Pros

    If the company can survive the digital transition, there is upside

    Cons

    Too many products, too many procedures, not good enough at selling and fulfilling its core offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus man, focus.... Back to the basics.
