    Pros

    Despite the undercurrent of negativity towards the Yellow Pages, they do fulfill a role

    Cons

    It is a dying industry and moving to the internet is not really going to prevent it or even delay the decline

    Advice to Management

    It's your company and your money and I'd say you are doing quite well with milking what you can from it.

    Pros

    Free to set own schedule to succeed at outside sales.

    Cons

    Yellow pages are on their way out and usage has declined and so has this company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better online products.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, unlimited income potential. Sieg Fisher is a good solid C.E.O. but more important he is a good man. I wish him and his family all the best. Rock Clum, R,V,P in No. Cal is the best thing to happen to the office in years. It was an honor to work for him and my D.S.M.

    Cons

    The economy and industry trends going away from print advertising. Even though the product is still effective and cost effective it felt like we were selling buggy whips and type writer ribbons.

    Advice to Management

    No hard feelings, this was a really good company to work for. In my opinion they should find or develop a product or service that is more in demand, I know easier said than done.. Their product might still be effective, but no one cares if they, the advertisers, have all their money tied up in a digital product.

    Pros

    Provided a great sales training with a positive attitude for a company with a troubled outlook.

    Cons

    Hard product to sell with lowering call counts and no belief from general public in main products (print) supported by owners. Outdated equipment and fairly incompetent production staff make getting ads from contract into print the way they need to be a difficult task. Used to have good compensation but was recently cut by more than 25% to existing staff. Also just cut more than half of existing sales force.

    Advice to Management

    Should have sold when offered 400 million when the economy was good.

  8. They need to go out of business.

    Pros

    Ability to make decent money.

    Cons

    Promises and more promises. My manager was a con artist and very unethical. Even charging me thousands of my commisionsfor her help which should of been free. When I called hr they did nothing. The would find any excuse not to pay bonuses. Very dishonerable company.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can save this company.
