    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits
    Yearly bonus and raise
    Nice co-workers
    Facility is nice with a pond and walking trails

    Cons

    Shrinking business and revenue.
    Printed yellow page ads still the biggest source of revenue and digital products not growing as fast as print is losing revenue.
    If you are in IT, find some place else, as IT is regarded as Sales support.

    I have been working at Supermedia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training, great salaries. Room for advancement and career paths. Sales people are given accounts to grow. Moving in to digital media and trialing new products and solutions. Multiple departments available for employment.

    Cons

    Large company who is struggling to redefine itself. Senior leaders not always aligned. Trying to shake the legacy that the company is founded on - which is yellow pages advertising. Sales Managers skills are varied. Too much work and not enough talent to get it done.

    Advice to Management

    Align mission and slow down to execute things right -- not fast. Communicate more. Coach managers out who are not competent.
