    Pros

    The field of interactive marketing is an exciting one and there is a lot of high energy here in the company with great camaraderie. Management style is highly collaborative and hands off. You are trusted to know your stuff and are given free hand to do it. Yesmail expects its employees to perform - that's why they are hired in the first place. Management does a pretty good job of culling dead weight. This means that those that work here aren't shouldered with the burden of taking on the extra work left by lazy co-workers.

    Cons

    The health care package is absolutely abysmal - but that's the fault of the parent company, infoGROUP. High deductible ($4000 per year!!), high monthly premium, and you pay FULL PRICE on all prescription drugs *until* you hit your yearly deductible. The 401k plan is ridiculous too - but what do you expect from the same team at infoGROUP that brings you the health care package? All the funds included in the plan are the worst performers in their class.

    Advice to Management

    Yesmail is moving full speed ahead regardless of the parent company. Keep putting the pedal to the metal. Stay aggressive, stay enthusiastic, and keep rewarding your employees for the hard work they do.

    Pros

    Solid organization with good growth prospects.

    Cons

    infoUSA benefits package needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, other than getting better benefits (health/medical) than infoUSA currently offers.

    Pros

    If it wasn't for the team I worked with, I would have left much earlier. Learn to handle a lot of responsibilities in a short amount of time. Fast pace.

    Cons

    Not appreciated by management or rewarded. Only time that they give you a raise is if you show them an offer letter.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from the bottom up. Email managers do a lot of work so stop underpaying them and trying to hire cheap!

    Pros

    Compensation at Yesmail is great. Great bonus program. Vacation time is great. (Minimum 3 weeks) Great corporate culture, fun teams to work with.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to work very long hours. Don't be suprised if you are working until 9-10pm and on weekends. Senior management seems to be pretty distant from Satelite offices, rare visits from managers. Being a subsidary of a larger company (InfoGroup) often means getting things done is slow, equipment requests, expense pay outs etc.

    Advice to Management

    Be closer with your satelite offices. Take notice, Yesmail exists outside of the walls of the Portland office.

    Pros

    Yesmail is an innovated company, really trying to push their products and employees to the next level. Everyone is very competent and great to work with.

    Cons

    The sister companies under Infogroup, that Yesmail works with are, are bloated with inefficiencies. These teams need to be modified to match the pace the online marketing space demands.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Yesmail is a great place to work for and moving in a great direction. Hopefully the sister companies won't bring this burgeoning company down.
