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

    Pros

    Commission and benefits are above average. Great training. Employees and middle management are amazing. Professional, fair work environment. Work from home. Flexible work schedule at times. Great resume experience. Put in a couple years here, and many doors open for high level sales positions.

    Cons

    Products are outdated. Internet services are deceptive, overpriced, and not up to date with competitors. Phone books are becoming extinct, and that is 90% of revenue. Upper management is unrealistic with goals and expectations. They micromanage and treat employees like children being punished if quotas aren't met. Outdated computer systems. Hours of paperwork. 50-60 hour work week if you want to make money. Youre only as good as your last sale!

    Advice to Management

    Its a sinking ship, and no advice can change the inevitable!
