    Negative Outlook

    I worked at 411 Local Search Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They will negotiate salary with new candidates, so you can and should get a healthy base salary.

    Cons

    They hire managers in droves and fire them after weeks not months. They hired 9 in Feb and all have been terminated or quit. Impossible work environment. Foreign single owner who blocks any chance of progress. If you have a serious drug problem or emotional issues, this is your kind of company.

    Advice to Management

    Add levels of management between owner and employees to try to at least reduce the massive turnover.

    I have been working at 411 Local Search Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great people to work with
    -opportunities for advancement...I am proof of it
    -when you work hard, there are great perks such as company trips (this past January over 25 of us went to an all inclusive resort in Cancun)
    -this past summer we moved into a new office which is an open concept that helps foster collaboration and creativity
    -many opportunities for continual training and development (both internal and external - for example guest speakers, our entire staff went to the downtown Google office for a seminar etc.)

    Cons

    -maybe because I still feel like I am in 'honeymoon phase' since I joined in August of last year, I can't think of any cons at the moment

    Advice to Management

    -don't stop providing training and development opportunities
    -continue to support an environment that allows anyone to give feedback to any executive at any time

    Pros

    - nice office
    - trip incentives for top performers

    Cons

    - Illegal practices.
     - Unsupportive management.
    - CFO personality is non interactive - unapproachable.
    - Favoritism in play
    - Terrible Pay Rates
    - 90% of employees are unprofessional - resulting in near HR issues - yet no actual HR to help you with your issues.
    - Nobody in the company is in it for you. Without HR - they do not have a proper system in place to look out for employees.
    - Insulted by coworkers and managers on a daily basis without an outlet.
    - Coworkers that show up to work high and drunk.
    - Extremely high turn around rate in every department.

    Advice to Management

    Remove CFO - pay employees better - monitor and police things like drugs, alcohol and harassment, provide a proper HR department - or hire a good lawyer before you are sued out of business.

    Pros

    I met some really fantastic and wonderful people, who were promptly fired or they quit.

    Cons

    If you value your career and sanity, do not work here. They treat their employees almost as poorly as they treat their customers. They are shady to the core.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down.

    I have been working at 411 Local Search Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual/ relaxed work environment . Flexible working hours. Great colleagues. Beautiful offices. Good location with a lot of restaurants around.

    Cons

    Very low pay and little chances of commissions if not working in the Sales department. No chances of promotion and no culture of meritocracy. Unrealistic sales target in non sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that actually know what's the day to day jobs are like. Hire competent people this company could be so much more profitable . The company needs to first improve their reputation/branding to be able to grow business

    Pros

    New building. Other than that, managers like to fluff around, clouded management, no transparency, they screwed me more than 3 times for my pay and I'm officially done with this "REPUTABLE" company.

    Cons

    BAD Management.
    Lack of transparency.
    Does not deliver with requests.
    This company loves to screw people and their money - STAY AWAY.

    Advice to Management

    WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH PEOPLES'S PAYCHECKS, AS A "REPUTABLE" COMPANY, YOU MUST HONOR YOUR WORD AS AN EMPLOYER AND NOT MESS WITH PEOPLE'S PAY.
