Empty promises

Sales Executive (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Yodle full-time for more than a year

ProsGood money can be made. Commission payout if fairly high when you make a sale. They give you free lunch, crapy, but free non the less. Friday happy hour, again with the cheap beer and box wine, but free.

ConsThey tell you to "challenge authority" yet when you do, you get in trouble. Not, a place where you can be creative and grow or help grow. This is a place where you go in and do what you're told and clock out. Not for me, but some people seem to love it, or they're just kissing a lot of butt.

Advice to Senior ManagementBoost up the salary, you're making a lot of money of your working bees, If you did just that. The turnover would not be as high as it is(extremely high). having such a low salary puts a lot of pressure on the employees and its hard to hit your numbers under pressure than it is when you feel like you're succeeding. I quit because I felt like I had way more to give and didn't have the freedom to grow. Too creative to be boxed.

Was great at first, but CEO and founders just want to sell the company or go public and then get out.

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Yodle full-time for more than a year

ProsIt was a good place to start working in sales when I started. It allowed me to learn, but that was before they rolled out scripting and forced you to hard close everyone.

ConsHard closing. No care for employee or customer. you're just a number that's going to help them go public or get bought. high turn over. horrible customer and employee service. They really don't care about their employees or their customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit or rewind to 3 years ago and try again.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fast Growing company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Yodle full-time

ProsGreat training for phone sales and other job skills. Makes for a good stepping stone to other jobs one may encounter in their career. High energy environment helps deal with the tediousness of phone sales. Rewarding for the ultra high producers who are treated like a king/queen.

ConsLow pay and and immature management.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook ahead and do the right thing.

ProsCommission splits highest I've ever seen.

ConsData is horrible & certain tactics are not 100% honest.

It was great when we started

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

I have been working at Yodle full-time for more than a year

Proshigh commission if your able to self source, data leads SUCK.

Consit has become a concentration camp, managers stalk around with virtual whips, regional manager is always angry and unless you are selling, you don't exist.
If you try to call in sick, or go home sick they give you hell,

Advice to Senior ManagementHAVE FUN! If you want us to sell, be upbeat, not like an Asian sweat shop. Management stuck a few managers in place that probably should not have gotten the job, STOP putting your "boys" in place and hire the most deserved.
