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

    Pros

    Great Training
    Positive Management
    A Needed Service for our clients

    Cons

    Hard to balance life priorities and continued employee training.
    Greater interaction with loyal customers needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I was hired in 1989 at GTE Directories they said the yellow pages was the cash cow to fund new technology. While extreme competition for the always evolving new technologies can be intimidating; communication and appreciation for the tool and access in every home that yellow pages offer is priceless. Tools with the training to use them seamlessly is essential to the success of our/your clients.

    I have been working at Supermedia

    Pros

    Great management. Good environment. Unlimited earning potential. Internet products are cutting edge. Print is not dead. Still a viable advertising medium in both rural and urban markets.

    Cons

    Negative attitudes. Must be personally driven. Union is both positive and negative. Some negative reinforcement / management with performance reporting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do a great job. Differing management styles between leadership is interesting. They support their people very well. Promotion from within

    Pros

    They are always working to be the leaders in the industry. They are always changing for the good of customers; and to provide a superior product. Those who cannot keep up with change do belong in this industry. Change is necessary.

    Cons

    Travel is hard for those with children. Travel is necessary to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I no longer work for super media due to the necessity to travel, but I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this company. They have outstanding upper management.
