Pros

Growth, the company is growing as faster or faster than anyone in a region full opportunity. Fantastic colleagues and leadership on a personal and professional level. Huge upside to climb the food chain if you work hard and perform.

Cons

Know what you're getting into, entry level inside sales is cold calling. People either love or hate Yelp. Small business owners aren't always the most savvy advertising minds, they hate the review someone left them, in turn probably don't like you off the bat. You need to have patients, thick skin and be coachable.

Advice to Management

Continue to restructure the comp plan as the company grows.

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, music playing, free food, kegs, ping pong table

    Cons

    So many cons...
    -expected to hit daily metrics of 80+ calls, 2+ hours on the phone, 5 appointments, 2 pitches
    -randomly assigned territories, some places that you can assign can have an average income of under 20,000 dollars a year and you are expected to sell them packages starting at 350/month. And you are stuck with that territory for a year
    -training program is not good. Ur only "trained" for the first week and then you are immediately put on the phones. All training consists of is practicing the script
    -extremely competitive environment, constantly reminded of others success and your own failures
    -have to sell advertisement to people that work in rundown pharmacies and dive bars in small towns aka people that don't have the money to advertise and don't need it
    -forced positivity
    -lots of gossip
    -constant pressure to succeed
    -have to be consistently yelled at and hung up on and then be able to pick the phone back up and call again
    -no down time
    -low pay
    -higher up claims that managers are there to help give you advice, but no one really has any advice to give

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training
