I have been working at hibu full-time

Pros

Unlimited commission potential at a high commission rate with products that almost sell themselves.

Cons

The brand is not well known and the management are mainly people that were top sales reps. We all know a high producing sales rep is not always the best management candidate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire good people and let them work.

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

    Pros

    company is committed to turning around, and they are working hard in that direction. They have to downscale significantly to do so, I think. I would avoid for 3-4 years as they "work out the kinks"

    Cons

    insane turnover rate, outdated products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, Please, Please do not continue to hire old guys without any knowledge of digital media. If you cant pass an adwords cert or a market motive SEO class, you shouldnt be selling the product. It gives the entire company a bad name if you are going into revenue accounts and stumbling through a pitch about SEO etc.

    I worked at hibu full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and vacation. Ability to work on your own

    Cons

    Company legacy product (yellowpages) are obsolete. Company is now primarily a digital company but does everything second and third rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care more about the reps that are really trying to sell. Stop the flavor of the month product pushes.
