    I worked at Yodle

    Pros

    Great work environment. Like most successful sales companies, Yodle prides itself for it's culture. Great pay for the people who can work hard and smart at the same time. This job is not for the whiny or the used car salesman. Since it's mostly based on phone selling and cold calling you have to learn people's tones and pitches and know when to stop. It's a big company so no one will baby sit you. If you want to succeed , most senior reps are always there to help.

    Cons

    Low base. ( But room for high commission) Not for the people who do not want to be on the phones. The training method could change a little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a balance between life and work and encourage the team to do the same..

    This is a great company to work for. The culture and environment are both amazing.

    Pay is a bit on the lower side, but the benefits and everything else are great.

    Pros

    Every morning, I am truly excited to get in the office and work alongside such smart, talented individuals. The opportunities Yodle has given me for personal growth, as well as professional growth – whether learning new analysis tools or pursuing strategic initiatives to help build our customer’s success – have been incredibly exciting, and the shared values across the company make for a very fun, motivating work environment.

    Cons

    Because of the fast-growing database and expanding product offerings, the company is constantly iterating on different tools for analysis, which for me (a product analyst) can mean taking on lots of new tools (i.e. coding languages, visualization techniques, etc.). Learning curve can be sharp, but very rewarding work to stick with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue focus on Essentials, work to embed product offerings in our client's day-to-day operations (i.e. email marketing, special offers); continue transparent communication.

    Pros

    Fun environment. Good guidance and support from the management and director level. Extremely favorable commission structure. Everyone is a genuinely good person. Spectacular for developing a career and quickly moving into management. You learn a lot about SMBs and how to sell and cold call.

    Top performers have the opportunity to meet the high level executives.

    Cons

    Hard to take time off without having saved up a lot of money as vacation hurts your paycheck severely because of low base salary. Its a hard job and its not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match 401k.

    Pros

    Free lunch and beer/wine on Fridays. They offer incentives to earn extra money.

    Cons

    The pros is what keeps you blinded in the beginning it's like when the government sensationalized Ebola and then whoa what's really going on. Training to the floor is not seamless you never get to shadow anyone. Training does not give you all the tools you need and then you have to ramp up in 2 weeks. No communication between training departments and sales floor management. Everything is scripted to the point that gatekeepers will tell you what your going to say. Do not expect to have any ramp up time or work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to rethink training - have your new employees shadow senior reps.

    I have been working at Yodle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I work with smart, fun and interesting people who believe in our mission and work to create and innovate. We get things done, and we have fun doing it. I've had an incredible amount of opportunity here. I love the challenge of being at a company that has to move fast to stay on top of the industry, and I love the environment I get to do that in. I know it sounds cheesy, but I really love my job.

    Cons

    No 401K match, and some of the craziness that comes with a company growing as fast as Yodle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When things are evolving this rapidly, be sure to check in about goals, tasks and tools.

    Pros

    Free lunch, great people,and great managers who are always willing to help out and lots of fun.Lots of recognition is always given out on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Training department needs a little more improvement.The training classrooms are way too large and not enough attention is being focused on and given to struggling representatives. And not enough training classes are being offered to struggling representatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Breakdown training/new hire classes into smaller groups for more one on one time with trainers. Give new hire employees daily assessments over each daily lesson they must pass and complete each day before moving forward to insure that each representative is understanding the concept of the job and what their daily expectations consist of before moving forward.
