    I have been working at Local Corporation as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Local is filled with extremely nice but disciplined, hardworking people. That along with a very good culture makes for a fun and interesting work experience that encourages collaboration, innovative thinking, and creative projects. It's great to be working with a diverse, talented group of people. Cool perk: Free lunches Monday, Wednesday, and Friday where people are encouraged to sit together and interact. CEO makes sure to be there as well to get to know everyone on a better level.

    A good place to grow, thrive, learn---the industry is fast-moving and constantly evolving, so there is a lot of potential and opportunity.

    Cons

    Noticed that some people have a lot to do but not enough time to do it. Should get some more help. Also, team meetings sometimes not started punctually and then will tend to drag, or projects might drag as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Continue learning activities to educate/update the team about details in the business. Continue to share and emphasize on the vision of the company - it keeps us all unified and motivated to work toward that ultimate goal.

    I have been working at Local Corporation as a contractor

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people in their craft work here; excellent team culture, people are very welcoming and receptive to new people and new ideas; atmosphere is a great balance of professionalism and friendliness. You have to come in ready to work and get things done, but the environment makes it worth it.

    Cons

    Meetings seem to dominate the bulk of one's day (nature of the beast), action plans feel reactive (vs. proactive) at times.

    Advice to Management

    Identify the key attributes, conventions, and mission of the company, that can unify the company in forward-moving endeavors.

    I worked at Local Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity; Compensation for productivity; Leadership; Technology; Work environment; Location; Benefits; PTO; Management Team: The executive management team has been very supportive.

    Cons

    Today's competitive environment to acquire and keep good talent requires a bit more flexibility around the ability to work remotely. The constraints on dual working families is extreme. Commuting is wasteful. I would recommend flexibility to work remotely for at least several days per week or month.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be supportive of your A-Players. Listen and act quicker on advice from key executives. Stay focused on strategic intiatives. Be more proactive on diversifying the technology (especially our patents) beyond our core technology.

    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has created a positive culture where employees can grow professionally. Without question, this company is the best I have ever worked for at communicating the goals, vision and direction of the company to all employees. Though they have been in business for almost 15 years, they maintain an entrepreneurial spirit and are not afraid to try new ventures. This creates learning opportunities and keeps things stimulating & interesting.

    Cons

    All of their businesses units face intense competition and core revenue streams are highly dependent on the major search companies. This can sometimes leads to choppiness and unexpected disruption

    Advice to Management

    Focus on innovation including continuously refreshing and expanding current products as well as developing the new, blue ocean strategies.

    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly interesting work for engineers. Working with the latest technologies - BigData, Search, etc. Great office environment with a lot of perks (Starbucks coffee, vending machines for .25C, free lunches, free Friday breakfast, birthday celebrations, picnics, etc). Work / Life balance is pretty good. Pay is very good. Best of all, I work with a lot of bright people.

    Cons

    The business that Local is in is very competitive and that at times can add pressure to all.

    Advice to Management

    Share as much as possible the long term vision.

    Pros

    The people that work at Local are some of the nicest you will ever meet. Sure it has its up's and downs like any company but it is one giant family.

    Cons

    Its one giant family - if you hate your family I imagine you would have a problem working here. I love it though.

    Advice to Management

    Feel free to continue to share what the future plans are for more growth. This is an exciting time to work at Local.

    Pros

    I've been with Local Corporation for 3 months and I have already enjoyed a movie day, indoor mini golf, breakfast and lunch with the executives. Oh, I almost forgot the added bonus summer hours on Friday's. We have to work hard and should for the excellent pay. I feel like an integral part of the company and fit in well with the great employees around me. I feel that I can experience growth with the company.

    Cons

    Have not really experienced Cons at this point.

    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive environment, ability to succeed, plenty of support and coaching, and some perks that make hard, earnest work pretty enjoyable.

    Cons

    I think the best improvement would be, of course, a higher percentage of quality leads, but the leads are plentiful so lots of calling is absolutely essential to succeed, and you'll know that going in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and always add advice as soon as needed when listening to calls, it helps the success-curve dramatically.

    I have been working at Local Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Local Corporation is a great place to work and has an amazing team, everyone is extremely talented in what they do. Management is very personable and encouraging, hard work does not go unnoticed here. Promotions are well deserved and happen often for those who put in the work. It is a breath of fresh air to work in an environment that recognizes the importance of a positive work/life balance and the benefits that arise from a strong and creative collaboration.

    Cons

    Some people get into the office later in the morning while others get in earlier. This can be challenging when trying to communicate and and touch base. Also, free bagels and pastries on Fridays are difficult to say no to when you're trying to stick to a diet...

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to share your goals and expectations for the company, it inspires us to continue working hard!
