    Pros

    Name brand necognition as they were once AT&T - now 43% owned by AT&T.

    Cons

    Total lack of diversity at the local level and more since YP became a 47% stake holder.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure work force representative of the population that they serve.

    Pros

    Decent training, learned online products and selling techniques

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of prep for sales appts. Most nights got 4 hours of sleep for 1 1/2 years. You have to print everything out imaginable......waste of paper and ink. One call close whether they need it or not.

    Advice to Management

    Be REAL. Foster a consultative relationship building sale, not just close them to get the sale ($$) / Quota.
