    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ketchum Directory Advertising as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a small, tight-knit staff who work well together towards a common goal.

    Cons

    This job does not always have long-term employment opportunities, which is very disappointing. I would have stayed with them if it were possible.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed the management staff. I thought they did a good job of working with and enlisting all staff to be a part of the project.


  2. "Proofreader"

    I worked at Ketchum Directory Advertising full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance and benefits, friendly environment, team oriented atmosphere, opportunities to cross-train and learn other positions. Quarterly company outings. Regularly awarding performance "spot bonuses" for exceptional work.

    Cons

    Lots of CYA processes that waste time and resources. Inefficient technologies inhibited workflow regularly. Gossipy culture. Felt like Office Space at times.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. They were the only thing that made KDA a viable option for employment.

    Cons

    Management was horrible. So many ideas, but none of them ever came to fruition. Communication was horrible and by the end of my time there, morale was incredibly low.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ketchum Directory Advertising full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, lots of paid time off, very flexible hours and the coworkers are excellent. There are a lot of paid holidays as well.

    Cons

    The yellow pages are dying, the company changed hands, the atmosphere is now horrible. Too much work for too few people.

    Pros

    Time off whenever an individual really needs it.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of everyone.

    Pros

    Very work/life friendly. The supervisors listen to what their employees say. The co-workers are very friendly and it almost feels like a family.

    Cons

    The company does not perform annual reviews. It doesn't feel like the company is moving forward, only trying to maintain ground in a shrinking pond. Don't feel that they are working to compete in the digital sphere.

    Advice to Management

    Look at social media as a true option. The C-Suite should attend the office functions so it will feel less like us vs them to the employees.
