I worked at hibu

Pros

One gets plenty of freedom to plan and work accounts. Media Pro makes it extremely easy to submit contracts and communicate with anyone in the system.

Cons

Although, there is a lot of freedom to work one's accounts, work activity must reported daily and new business is greatly emphasized. One is also burdened with collections and an enormous amount of accounts which do not want to renew.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax the micro management and useless conference calls held without warning. Eliminate the "pep" talks that are very familiar to the pyramid type sales approaches.

    Pros

    Compensation is pretty good compared to other sales jobs I've seen posted. It's not rocket science and if you are willing to break a sweat you can do well.

    Cons

    The industry as a whole (yellow pages- print & online) is a scary place to work in if you're not retiring in the near future. It's becoming a harder industry to work in and is certainly not what it used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start doing alot more with website development. Things like E-commerce on sites we build would be a help.
