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.

Advice to Senior ManagementStructure with clear direction highly recommended. Increase SDR team & reduce sales team to mid-top closers.

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.

Fast growing, great technology, techie culture, bad technical managers

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsYodle is a fast paced company using cutting edge technologies. The people are very smart, social, and friendly. In a short amount of time you can learn more than you've ever learned before.

ConsThe best developers are made into engineering managers and hence become terrible managers. Management as a whole is not emphasized at all and different groups including QA and UX have turned into fiercely defended fiefdoms. Developers are not expected to be well rounded, they are expected to chug out the work.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring back management, its essential. Promote people who can make good managers first and technologists second. Promote the best developers to tech leads.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
