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

Pros

back in 2005-06 when they had books scoped in the TWP footprint - it all made sense.

Cons

Yellowbook bought TWP aka TransWestern Publishing back in 2005 - thought this was going to be a great marriage. YB management had no clue on how to run their markets and their bogus internet products. All sales data was flawed and misleading. You can see now why this company's stock is now worthless. RIP Yellow Pages by hibu....tough name to type, another marketing disaster.....hibu....really ! poor management killed this company, simple as that.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at hibu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and good health insurance

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement for minorities

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people of color. Look at the pictures online, there are two blacks out of 39 pictures of 100's of employees. No Latinos and No Asians. What message are you sending when you primarily promote and hire whites? Utica Michigan is a suburb of Detroit and there's no blacks in the office? The company has always had an issue with color and promoting. When I complained they had the token black woman from HR call me. Really? Time to change and not just your name!
