    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.

    Pros

    People, management, service and products, fun place to work.

    Cons

    Parent company uses 411.ca's successful marketing efforts to compete with them, thus convoluting market share for both companies.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in senior experienced managers in the sales department. Inside sales department needs professional training to be more effective and professional when connecting with potential clients. Add a small field sales force to go after the mid to large accounts.
    Work with parent company to solidify a cohesive overall marketing plan that you both share and adhere to that sends the same message to the overall market.
    Or at best define and divide your target markets so you're not doubling up on your efforts.

    Pros

    pay, team members, commissions, break room

    Cons

    Managers, upper management, one way or another they will try to screw you with your commissions now. Before it was fine, now its impossible to make what we use to make.

    Advice to Management

    make calls to understand what sales reps are dealing with. high expectations without knowing what we were doing. Never had female managers, all males. Now that i think of it, they never hired a visible minority for any management positions.

    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

    No opinion of CEO

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

    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.
