Negative Outlook

I have been working at Directory Publishing Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working with small to medium sized businesses is rewarding. The people at the telephone companies are great to work with, and always helpful and respectful.

Cons

The pay standard is way below national levels for this type of sales. Not getting the proper tools to do your job on time seems to be a real problem.

Advice to Management

Management needs to have a better understanding of how the paperwork and processes are successfully achieved. Being more supportive of the Sales Force is one of the most important factors of being a good sales manager. Get out in the field and work beside them on a daily basis. Knowledge of the canvas is key.

    Pros

    Independence. Solid product and pricing structure. Freedom to set your own schedule. No micro-mangement (in most cases). Company genuinely wants to profide good service and good value to customers.

    Cons

    Heavy paperwork load. Nonsensical decisions by upper management. Unpredictable changes in policy. No two-way exchange between sales and upper managemnt. Poor communication ot company goals to those in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to reinvent the wheel. Don't make short-term decisions based on panic. Procede forward thoughtfully and carefully and actually listen to your sales people that are working out in the field--they might actually know something.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Directory Publishing Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice; can be challenging

    Cons

    Too many policy changes on a daily basis, no real strategy planning, upper management micro manages everyone-no trust whatsoever. Video cameras are watching you; the good people have all left.
