    You're just a number to ReachLocal

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about the traditional advertising world. Treat your employees like people and not like a vessel for your own growth.

    Pros

    Lots of training and accessible managers most of the time.

    Cons

    No transparency. Everything is told in half truths. It's a very unstable environment where you have no idea if you're going to get fired the next or not.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees. If things aren't great that's fine but get your employees involved and get feedback. Don't be doing all of this cloak and dagger stuff.

    Pros

    Culture! Mgmt believes in the importance of creating an energetic, fun, creative work environment and they are willing to spend money to execute programs that create a positive, supportive atmosphere. They also believe in work-life balance; very understanding about family needs and emergencies, as well as employee health. Supportive of doing volunteer work in our community! Respect! Coworkers are respectful of each others' opinions, even when they disagree. Rarely hear arguments or raised voices. Everyone is professional. Hard on issues, easy on people.

    Cons

    Pay is average; raises are 2-4% usually; too much work with too few people; some put in long hours; sometimes it feels like mgmt takes these dedicated employees for granted and some end up leaving. The more you do, the more work they give you. But this is pretty typical in the current US economy since the economic collapse in 2008. Turnover seems to have increased in the past 12 months for some reason; might be more job opportunities. I wish the company worked harder to keep valuable, talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the percentage of raises. Promote from within. Promote more often. Work harder to retain talented employees. Improve cubicles and furniture/workspace.

    Pros

    Great people and great technology makes ReachLocal one of the leaders in this industry.

    Cons

    Seem to lack a consistent direction as a company and seems to not know where they want to go. Online advertising is such a crowded industry it makes it hard to get through and differentiate yourself from lesser companies.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the company to the public more.

    Pros

    It's an easy sell to prospects who don't know how to do Google Adwords on their own

    Cons

    Clients are not getting enough ROI because RL profit is too high

    Advice to Management

    focus on long term client retention & adding value, and stop going for the highest possible profit margin.

    Pros

    Good tools and products. I think that most people that complain about "the management" are not ready for this type of hard work. Maybe foot locker for those folks.

    Cons

    No one is going to do it for you. You have to work hard. This job is all about the residual and if you can't sell quickly then you will not make the money. Reps that have been there for years are making money. It's tough to start fresh now.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Congrats on landing this job! The area director should give every one the hope and desire to try for upper level jobs. If he did it...
