    YP is a company in transition, still having too many "old school" leaders in a hig tech, advanced industry -- conflicted

    Pros

    Positives include the people we work with, the customers, some of the new products.

    Cons

    Sales leadership is micro-managing and controlling. Old management style and practices and systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come into the 21st Century with your leadership. Walk the walk.

    Pros

    The potential to make money is great and as an outside sales associate, you can have a great quality of life. Management is very supportive and ambitious to grow the business. The health benefits are good after you pay your high deductible.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is non performing products and trying to out sell losses. It's a typical sales culture, ever changing goals and compensation plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the goal of growing the business with new business often puts current customers on the back burner. Many unhappy customers in the market makes it that much more difficult to sell new.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, car allowance, benefits, company expenses, wide range of marketing products to offer clients, innovative company, and perks when hitting goals.

    Cons

    Sales compensation is not up-to-par as some of the other sales jobs out there. In order to really do well, you HAVE to sell to new businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has good potential although very cutthroat.
