    I have been working at Infogroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great in terms of work life balance. I couldn't ask for better superiors. They are very understanding and flexible when it comes to family matters. There is a very laid back atmosphere that encourages collaboration and teamwork that keeps everyone motivated.

    Cons

    There isn't a well defined career path. In order to climb the ladder, you have to move departments or wait for someone above you to be promoted or leave the company. Pay could be better also.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for hard work and a job well done. Help them to grow to benefit your company, not someone else's.

    Lots or room to gain responsibility/Experience, but managers are never given enough resources to do the job.

    I have been working at Infogroup full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Provides plenty of new opportunities for responsibility. Colleagues are great.
    Schedules are flexible.

    Cons

    No raise in pay if you move up from within the company. Raises are always better requested "Next Quarter".... no real "Perks". Very boring and gray in the building, and corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop moving teams around, and really consider paying to keep your people.

    Current Employee - Senior Client Operations Specialist in Ames, IA

    I have been working at Infogroup full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the work I do, it challenges me. I've worked for my division of our company for over 25 years and have seen us be bought and sold many times. This current group of investors is no different than any in the past. No better, No worse, just neutral.

    Cons

    Lack of annual reviews, raises are few and far between, the PTO policy is not structured in a way that benefits the employees, you have to use it all by the end of the year and start the next year with only two days of PTO, I hate to be sick in January. The big push for more and more sales without the systems and workers in place to handle the accounts successfully. There is a lack of training on new systems before they are rolled out, including the systems themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how you would feel if you were a lower level employee and had to live by the current PTO policy.

    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Papillion, NE

    I have been working at Infogroup full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Trying hard to think of "Pros." My boss let me modify my hours so that I could come in earlier...that was a good thing.

    Cons

    Everything is an emergency, there's no planning, it's just a big, disheveled pile of IT that makes little sense and doesn't work too well. Vacancies not back-filled in a timely manner, which makes turn-over/training impossible or at best, difficult. Management mismanages pretty much everything. We can't even get functionally relevant technical books for our team. There is an open and tangible disdain for employees on my team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt some 6 Sigma or something... Get a grip.

    Current Employee - Contractor in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at Infogroup as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    There are many divisions within Infogroup. and this company provides a lot of opportunities to try new jobs at different locations.

    Cons

    The company was a public company, which was taken private by a private equity company. since then there had been a lots of volatility within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management first need to address the anxiety within the employees. So they are free and focus on work, rather than talking about the mismangement all the time.

    Subpar management, constant political turmoil

    I worked at Infogroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Depending on the position, one can just punch the clock and get by while it lasts. They have some good data assets, but all the technologies are literally stitched together. Benefits are decent, but don't expect any other perks.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization. No continuity in company direction or policies. Frequent change in upper management leading to toxic political environment. No scheduled review or raise. Defeated attitude set in. Management repeatedly rely on a few good employees who end up burned out. Most management team members do not have good industry knowledge, leading bad decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the middle management and put more resources in training. This is an environment where capable employees are punished with no hope for advancement. Constant reorganization doesn't help matters either.
