I worked at Supermedia as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

There wasn't much micromanagement, so I could do my job at ease and it made things more fun. I met so many people there that I am still friends with to this day. Dress is business casual and you had options with the hours you worked. Mainly the amount of great people I became close with is all I can say was good about this company.

Cons

People in upper management didn't know half the things I did or many of their employees under them. I was a contractor for 2 years and never was approached about being hired on, but the amount of work they gave me increased, pay did not, and a the possibility I could be let go hovered over my head all the time. The way clients were treated was just sad. New products promised clients things we could not provide, then I was left explaining to angry callers why we promised them something they are not receiving, oh and they could not cancel their contract. Also be prepared to work, even when it's snowing outside and the roads are dangerous. They'll make you take PTO, or in my case, not paid at all.

Advice to Management

Your employees know more than you do. Learn something so that you can teach new ones. Being a manager doesn't just mean you can keep a group of people showing up on time and play nice. You should be a mentor, a leader, an example and empathetic to everyday life.

    I have been working at Supermedia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employee pay and benefits are industry average

    Cons

    Micromanagement is horrible, zero opportunities for career advancement, managers have been transferred from the print side to the digital side and are clueless, culture is practically non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging an use the knowledge and strengths of individual contributors better. Get some training on the digital products.
