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

    Pros

    Name brand necognition as they were once AT&T - now 43% owned by AT&T.

    Cons

    Total lack of diversity at the local level and more since YP became a 47% stake holder.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure work force representative of the population that they serve.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, casual atmosphere, mostly hands-off managers. Nice union perks...then YP busted the union by laying everyone off.

    Cons

    Was a decent job under AT&T, but all fell apart after the sale to Cerberus and subsequent formation of YP. No respect for long term employees or those who are not in a "tech" position. Recently outsourced the jobs of hundreds of good American workers to India. You would be hard pressed to find an actual employee, most everyone is a contractor. Senior Management is annoying and arrogant, they think they're the next Google but they aren't. They don't really care about the customers or the actual quality of the products, only the money.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to sell advertising in the United States, it is a good idea to have it created by American workers not foreign contractors who don't even comprehend the English language.
