I have been working at Supermedia full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits are good, commission not bad and my co-workers are great.

Cons

Management (well really one) is the worst micromanager I have ever seen. There is no support from managers. They love to tell us what to do, lyrics to use but couldn't sell ice cubes to an Eskimo. Phone book is dead and too late for Internet world. Can't sell a product if you know it doesn't work.

Advice to Management

Why don't you ever listen to the MC's when we complain about our bosses or anything. Do you really think that 5 people quit in 4 months and all had the same thing to say and of course nothing was done. Have Management on the phones selling too. They did it 10 years ago but have no clue whats it like calling someone asking them to advertise. Practice what you preach.

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. Thats it. Oh, and nice kitchen

    Cons

    I could write a book but: Bad Business, Super Micro Managemet, horrible managers, the worst pay, just a bad company all around, never worked so hard for so little money, they will burn you out, thankless job, the paperwork is ungodly, they treat business owners like a slab of meat. I feel bad for the business owners

    Advice to Management

    take a management course, read a book, get a clue
