    I worked at Supermedia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Use to be one of the best companies to work for when it was NYNEX, and progressively got worse; Bell Atlantic, Verizon, Idearc Media, and then Supermedia. Benefits were great at one point, and pay/compensation was great. I was fortunate and was able to retire early with pension still in tact.

    Cons

    Micro managed to a ridiculous point. More interested in selling the "flavor of the day" than what is best for the customer. New hires get it worse than veterans. Industry is perceived as dying, and internet products are not as well received.

    Advice to Management

    More detailed reports that are factual for customers and sales reps to believe in for internet products. Partner with Google because that is what the customer wants!

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Training
    Positive Management
    A Needed Service for our clients

    Cons

    Hard to balance life priorities and continued employee training.
    Greater interaction with loyal customers needed.

    Advice to Management

    When I was hired in 1989 at GTE Directories they said the yellow pages was the cash cow to fund new technology. While extreme competition for the always evolving new technologies can be intimidating; communication and appreciation for the tool and access in every home that yellow pages offer is priceless. Tools with the training to use them seamlessly is essential to the success of our/your clients.
