    Pros

    Commission structure use to be good. Did lots of fun activities and worked with very cool people.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Second year after company was taken over everything went to hell. Company started firing people left and right for no reason. In 3 months 30 people quit or got fired. Company drastically changed commission structure so employees can't make money. Base is not enough to live on. Very stressful job and constantly changing policies and managers did lot of unethical things which resulted in most of them getting fired including the GM.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bring back the commission structure or at least pay people more. Need to make the environment a lot less hostile. Management needs to listen more to needs of employees.

    Pros

    Freedom. That's about it. IPAD

    Cons

    Training is a joke. Assume Management and Recruiters are lying. The bonus (RGP) is actually a forgivable loan. Paid out monthly and if you don't make 90% of your yearly number you have to pay every dime back. Could be upwards of 30k. My monthly budget went up 250% in four months Every time someone leaves their budget is split between the remaining reps. If you don't make 90% of the ever increasing budget your put on warning and then fired. 11 people either quit or were fired in one month, out of 40. Your customers hate you with passion and will tell you often. The product doesn't work very well at all. Don't believe the good reviews it's just management looking for new cannon fodder (you) or new people who haven't figured out what's going on yet. Don't get suckered by the free trip to LA.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your sales people better. Management by algorithm is weak.

    Pros

    Noble mission, helping businesses and communities grow. YP is the absolute leader in local solutions, with more revenue, more innovative products and engineering support, and a leading industry brand. YP has scaled many of their product offerings to be in house, cutting out the added margin of vendor companies and translating the performance and value of their programs to the end consumer. Promotion and development opportunities are numerous as long as you perform successfully. Great compensation plan. A growing business with a bright future, YP is a great place to have a career, not just a job.

    Cons

    Difficult objectives, aggressive budgets. Branding needs continuous upgrading. Products work well but need to innovate faster and with the speed of the market.

    Advice to Management

    BRAND BRAND BRAND- Need to leverage the new identity with a more bullish marketing strategy for local business, and for local consumers. Has the potential to be the next brilliant franchise brand with more exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it Exciting and rewarding! Since joining YP as a sales rep I have made more money than I ever have before. I can say that my expectation was somewhat low coming in due to my antiquated vision of the company, but you have really knocked my socks off! I have worked for some pretty great companies too: Dale Carnegie, Verizon Wireless, Bank of America...YP trumps them all in many ways. More than anything else I am excited to come to work every day because I am proud to be a part of this company. Every time we acquire or innovate new technology, do more brand marketing and bring new products and services to the market; I am inspired and empowered to reach farther and rewarded for doing so. I have a clear understanding of our direction and goals and I truly feel that we are all rowing the same direction. It really has been a great opportunity for me and my family!!
