    I have been working at The Local Pages full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have just completed my fourth year of employment and have been promoted twice in two years. As an Advertising Consultant the work was fairly easy and the pay great. There is no cap on the salary, you will definitely get out what you put in. The company promotes from within and of course as a Manager you will have more responsibilities and more pay. The owner, Kelly Clark, leads by example and is always willing to share his selling success and how he does it with everyone! Upper management is exceptional and work very hard to be proactive in resolving any new challenges as they arise.

    Cons

    I have no cons as stated above the company addresses all issues as they arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Pros

    Travel opportunities, advancement opportunities, uncapped compensation, minimal micromanagement. If you have a good work ethic and are willing to learn this is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    I'm tired of traveling and would like to be home more.

    Pros

    I have been working with this company for over a year and a half now and I just love it! The income potential has no cap on it, literally the sky is the limit!! My favorite part is we get to travel to new territories which keeps this job interesting and always brings you fresh business from the leads provided to you by the company. In the first year of working here I was promoted into management and it has only gone up from there. I would recommend this job to anyone that is self motivated, loves to travel, does great with talking to people, likes sales, and most of all does not have a fear of making a great income.

    Cons

    I would say I have not come across any cons, any issues I have ever had are addressed immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep taking good care of your employees, and they will take good care of you.

    Pros

    As an outside sales rep, my pay is based on my ability to sell. As it should be....I'm sick of the cry babies who complain that the company is at fault for not caring enough. That is just plain B.S. They must be of the generation that feels entitled!! to something for nothing............sorry, children, that isn't the real world
    This company puts no limits on us. I love working here

    Cons

    None. We are still growing and that in and of itself should tell you something. Just stop and listen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on

    Pros

    Outside Sales reps & managers have the oppertunity to make the income that satisfies there needs with no salary cap!
    Paid weekly & company promotions opportunities are not over looked by higher management.
    I've been with the company for a year & I have accomplished my own goals "sales rookie of the year" award & promoted to "book manager"within my first six months.
    The outside sales reps that I've had the opportunity to work with are fun friendly people & the sales support team is a awesome group. Management is always been helpful with questions & providing information that helps you be successful in this industry.

    Cons

    In my opinion this job has no "cons" job does requires you to be self-motivated,have people skills & like to travel if you want to be successful!!

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Poor communication between executives down the chain. No performance reviews, they say there's a "raise freeze" then the CFO tells in secret there's no such thing, they just tell employees that asking for a raise.
    No bonuses for peons. I imagine the executives get fat bonus checks and don't share with the people who actually do the work.
    They just don't really care about anyone and everyone is dispensable, no matter your loyalty to the company.
    Fun fact: every year for christmas, they give a $20 Walmart gift card. My current job which I have been at for a few months gave all employees $200 for Thanksgiving. For Christmas, everyone received a $300 Best Buy and $500 AMEX.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize people who work hard, not just your celebrity sales team.

    Pros

    Decent commissions and pre printed leads and contracts make it no cold calling

    Cons

    Book managers for the area are supposed to give out plastic wrapped unopened lead sheets and I only ever got one pack un opened un tampered with. By tampered I mean that the manager takes the big money contracts out of the packs and leaves new sales reps with leads spread out over 20 miles and no gas reimbursement and half the leads end up being corporate accounts or residential addresses so the job becomes
    Cold calling door to door . The one week training they give doesn't apply when you go into the field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on your book managers, half the reason there is a huge turnover rate and employees quit or don't succeed is lack of opportunity

    A very, very difficult company to work for on my levels.

    Pros

    The travel takes you to many beautiful places to work. You meet a lot of wonderful people

    Cons

    Reps will be away from home 5 days a week every week. In some markets, reps will be given almost no leads and/or very weak lead packs. Management will lie to you to cover their tracks. This is a company that expects their employees to give them the world and expects its employees to ask for almost nothing in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company offered a generous benefits package, it might ease some of the stress and pressure of being on the road week after week.
