    Pros

    Yellow Book is a career "Rocket Ship". I have seen over 300 promotions over the last 2 years. They treat employees with respect and are open with them. I love the way the company focuses on its customers. The CEO is a focused leader with a strong history of winning. The benefits are top notch and there is plenty of individual growth.

    Cons

    Growth creates issues constriction of flexibility. There is a downside to being part of an international company. The parent company is in the UK and the stock is traded on the London Stock Exchange. I feel the the business in the US has more growth in its future than the UK investors see.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees better than the competion does.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded with excellent pay. I have been an employee for better than 10 years and probably have the most well rounded view of all the reviews on here. I can assure you that productive Reps enjoy fantastic pay, a flexible work schedule, and many advancement opportunities. As I read some of the other reviews it is I obvious that most of the negative omments were made by employees who weren't successful. Rest assured, a good work ethic will insure success!

    Cons

    As with EVERY job there are things that cause frustration. Yes, there are office politics and yes there is some favoritism... Show me am office where this doesn't exist! The fact is that my job has Afforded me a very comfortable lifestyle where I have the freedom to raise a family be be an involved parent.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of recognizing that all sales are not created equal. I'm sure the investors would rather see 30 sales for $180,000 than 60 sales for $60,000

    Pros

    atmosphere, management is very flexible and understanding. Opportunites to advance are within your own potential. Very caring understanding place to work.

    Cons

    unstable on employement. With the economy in a down turn the stability of your job is questionable, however HR will try to find a place for you in another department.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing a wonderful job, they are motivating, encouraging, and caring to employees at Yellowbook. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    It really is a great place to work, just like any other advertising job there is stress to get new business. Good time off, 401k, paid training period.

    Cons

    A lot of new products coming out with little time to get to know them.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing, Yellowbook will be a industry leader if you do.

    Company Morale is great, there are many opportunities for bonuses and extra time off.

    Cons

    Sometimes Sales is a bit misleading to customers. Then we at corporate had to deal with that.

    Pros

    yellowbook is a very forward looking company and has been receptive to the transitions in the market. They have also been very responsive to employee needs. On eof the only companies to raise salary and lower objectives to ensure sales people can achieve desired income. A v ery supportive company. Like any successful company they have objectives and standards. People that put forth the effort will be very successful. Those that don't have the drive and desire to be successful won't!

    Cons

    The sales climate has become a little more challenging with economic issues and industry transitions as is with most companies. Obviously it takes a little more effort and skills to maintain your level of success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving towards the future. you have a lot of support from the vast majority of the employees

    Pros

    Yellowbook offers uncapped earning potential, and you can advance your career very quickly. What you put IN to your career is what you get out of it - You can be as successful as you want! The diverse product offerings have opened many new doors, and have made YB a leader in the multi-media industry.

    Cons

    What you put IN to your career is what you get out of it - If you do not have a good work ethic, and priortize your time, you will have a difficult time truly succeeding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead by example, and care about your people. This is what built this great company, and will continue to successfully take us in to the future.

    it's a big corporation which has a lot of pros, however like in any big company you do not necesarily have control of each department, such as credit.

    we need more leaders!

    Pros

    The atmosphere is incredible. We are constantly improving and adding to our product portfolio, the benefits and income potential are outstanding, and each employee's career is fostered.

    Cons

    Sometimes with all of the new products and "changing times" we need to do a little research and work outside of our normal hours... but it's fun to do this as well.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the great communication with your employees. Continue to push for us to be a leader in the marketplace, and thank you for letting me a part of this wonderful organization!
