    Pros

    - incomparable work/life balance - competitive salary - high exposure to senior leadership - numerous opportunities for 20% projects; highly supported and recommended - workshops/events held weekly - atmosphere: relaxed, hungry, buzzing, fun, raw - coworkers: fun, helpful, good people, diverse, SMART - mobility: high - tons of resources

    Cons

    - Transparency: I've been told this is an issue for some YP employees, but have personally found a solution. I have been proactive about asking managers questions, building relationships with senior leadership, and showing initiative in my role. I have never felt uninformed or blindsided as a result. Those who do not take the steps to communicate and show their interest in the future of YP / their future with YP are less informed as a result of their own lack of interest.

    Advice to Management

    - Thank you for your continuous support. I am excited for the future!

    Pros

    -Excellent technology within the company -Cutting edge Big Data tech including Hadoop, Spark, HBase etc. -Good compensation package -Open to innovation and great growth opportunities for self-starters.

    Cons

    YP doesn't have a lot in the way of the amenities you'd usually find at a tech company, like free snacks and an visually appealing workspace. This may be a big deal to some.

    Advice to Management

    Address the tech debt within the organization in order to unchain developers to focus more on forward thinking problems.


  7. Training

    Pros

    This is my second week in. So far so good. Training was great! The trainers really seem invested in making sure the new hires understand the value of the marketing solutions offered at YP. The commission structure is very generous, especially if you exceed your budget.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. Make no mistake it's a hunting position. Having an entrepreneurial mindset, I think is key to thriving in this position.

    Pros

    Like I said.... Dominating the market. Reports for proof Everyone is making big money Culture rules if you are making money (selling) you can do what you want. You are not treated like an adult here.

    Cons

    Everyone is selling not so much help in the office because we are growing so fast.

    Advice to Management

    Put incentives in front of reps that have recently started to help the newbies close deals and learn the ropes.

    Pros

    * great if you want to come in, be a good little cog, go home, and collect your paycheck * processes actually work * low stress * pleasant co-workers * nice office

    Cons

    * inappropriate place for leaders and other strong personalities * no career growth * change of the guard from Q4 2014 to Q2 2015 means you'll have to figure out legacy systems with little help

    Advice to Management

    We had a good run together. Peace.

    YP is more of a political environment that doesn't look at skill rather than which inner circle you belong in.

    Pros

    Salary is the best reason to work there but you do have to jump through hoops to keep your job.

    Cons

    The negative work environment is highly stressful. Turnover is high.

    Advice to Management

    YP should reevaluate their stance on quality. It's not their people but poor technology at fault.
