Current Employee - Telephone Sales in Pleasanton, CA
Current Employee - Telephone Sales in Pleasanton, CA

I have been working at YP full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

has some potential there with what they are doing in regards to the internet and generating leads

Cons

Management needs to come into the 21st century and realize that punishing people is not a way to motivate them. Possibility that Cerberus would sell YP once they generated their return on the investment they made.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat people well, lead from the front

    Current Employee - Media Consultant

    I have been working at YP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work / life balance is great
    Most managers are good if your on the fulfillment side (sales is another monster)
    Flexible schedule, just work your 8 hours and go home
    Lots of autonomy
    Casual dress code
    Good training
    Atlanta office is modern and nice (huge cubicles)
    A leader is search
    I really do feel like I make an impact in helping small businesses grow

    Cons

    Absolutely no perks or frills (we were asked to pay for our own holiday party)
    pay is marginal
    Red tape to the MAX thanks to it AT&T's mentality ( why does sales need a union?)
    Lots and lots of emails
    Processes change daily (no need to learn them as it'll change next week)
    high turnover (get your experience then leave)
    Hire a ton of contractors but only hires one person a full time
    Ran by old white men...no diversity in upper management
    Difficult for career growth (HR is slow)
    Slow to innovate in the digital arena

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    INVEST INVEST INVEST in your employees! Hire contractors if they do good work! Don't be afraid to spend money on them, they are your capital.
