    I worked at YP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Knowledge base of employees and tenure is strong.

    Cons

    Capital Management company that came in changed the direction of the organization. Skilled leadership, but too many from outside the industry which has been a detriment to the vision of the organization. Industry veterans are dwindling, loss of focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could very easily continue to lead if core products are not sacrificed for quick profits on products and services that are not industry differentiators.

    Current Contractor - Contractor-Finance Department in Glendale, CA

    I have been working at YP as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    In the Glendale office, the environment is casual. It's a low stress job and the pay is good. YP provides complimentary snacks, a variet of breakfast food, coffee, tea, etc.

    Cons

    I was hired as a contractor so the benefits are terrible, I pay more for the minimum coiverage required by the law than what my spouse pays for great coverage with Kaiser through his employer. The company is in the process of outsourcing a lot of the their contracted departments and in the process of transitioning, contractors (even those that have been with the comnpany for multiple years) are treated without much regard and at the most given a few days notice that the department is shutting down.

    The sales training is world class.
