    Pros

    Tons of perks, and work incentives, and holy COW so much money to be made.

    Cons

    It's a job cold-calling, which is not notoriously fun to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome. If you wanted to bump base salary, that'd be pretty cool, but honestly, the commission percentages already rock.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work with other like minded indvidiuals that appreciate thoughtful smart approaches to getting work done as well as having a good time while doing it! Change is constant, and that keeps me on my toes. I learn new things every week. CEO and most executives are very approachable and want to hear from employees on how to make the company and its products better. I feel a part of a really exciting progressive organization that is doing great things for small businesses.

    Cons

    Change can bring uncertainty, but it can also challenge you to step up and lead. Compared to other companies, I don't see a lot of downside here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people and product. Balance is a good thing.

    Work is tedious, total game of chance.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you shouldn't fire some people because of their win.

    Pros

    Thorough training process which is 30 days of on the job training, in which you are very likely to make money, mixed with class time. Trainers are only allowed to be trainers if they were successful sellers. They are sincerely dedicated to individual growth. They don't only care about graduating a big class, they want you to succeed.

    Continuous growth with this company is very easy if you are willing to learn. Management (the managers are not untouchable here) cares about you individually and will come in early / stay late to help you succeed. Just like the training managers, team managers had to have great success selling before they were promoted (your manager will know what he's doing and what your work entails).

    The process continues with upper management. This company always promotes within and promote the best candidate for the job.

    If you are willing to work hard AND LEARN, while following Yodle's sales process, you will make a lot of money here. I remember wondering if I could close a deal every now and then. Looking back, I am so glad I found this job.

    Free snacks / soda all day long.
    Wednesday = hump day training (free food for attending) in which you can develop your skills.
    This company does care about you and will invest as much in you and you invest in you.

    Continuous improvement after

    Cons

    Let's call the elephant in the room out here.... Cold calling isn't very fun. Whether you've been sucecssful in sales or haven't sold anything, If you're willing to cold call and follow the process then you can make some great money here.

    If you are looking for a job just for hourly wages, don't come here you won't last. If you aren't coach-able or don't have a strong work ethic, don't come here you won't make money.

    But if you're like I was before I took this job, eager to learn and ready to make money, but debating if you can handle a sales job.... This is it, I'm not making this up for a good review or star rating, I'd share Yodle with anyone it's that great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I love my life, job and thanks for everything!

    Pros

    Good way to break into software sales, try for a high energy environment, future forward company and some great leadership.

    Cons

    Use a technique they term 'parroting' which is where they jump onto your call and you are expected to be a bird repeating their words without following the conversation. Managers who are poor at teaching, being helpful, or caring about others. Meetings are excessive at times.

    Advice to Management

    Structure your feedback, don't just jump into every call. Energy is important but it doesn't mean dancing around the bay and getting in people's faces. Be respectful, it's a great way to get people to want to continue to work for you.

    Pros

    Fast growth, smart exec leaders, lots of internal promotions, supportive co-workers.

    Cons

    Local search is a tough, competitive industry. Getting to the "right" answer to solve problems for clients is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Continue to set a high bar for performance.

  8. Finally a place where I can be myself and benefit from my hardwork ethic.

    Pros

    Awesome work environment, I'm a big fan of the dress code as well. Hours are great it's been years since I've had weekends off and been able to enjoy life. Great people, great management and a place to grow.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work environment can be loud and distracting but it's part of the fun we have. Also being that I live in a different part of town traffic is terrible and I suggest you find a carpool.

    Advice to Management

    Healthier snacks and drinks rather than the soda and coffee. With the company expansion it's time for better meeting rooms equipped with chairs and a table for everyone.

    The supportive nature of the team and good hearted competition

    High stress, quick turn over, no real relationships formed with clients, get the 16 digits from them and move on- management cares only about RV

    Pros

    Very rewarding. Commission structure is very lucrative.

    Cons

    They say that challenging authority is welcomed. But its really not. They are not transparent with employees. The turnover rate amongst employees is deplorable. Very stressful. Working everyday in fear.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to cut down high turnover amongst employees.
