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

    Pros

    Regular schedule, decent benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    SHADY sales tactics. Management is not supportive of what you do.
    Raises are a complete joke. I received a nickel once and said if that's all you can offer me next year please keep it.
    Sales reps, while some are terrific and ethical, most of them will bring the company to it's knee's. If flat out lying to customers in order to get a commission is the goal, LocalEdge exceeds in it's mission. It's embarrassing dealing with customers who have been dealt with in this manner.
    I do NOT recommend working at LocalEdge.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the trail of crap left behind by bad sales reps for others to deal with by simply dealing with the bad reps.

    The work environment is very creative and encouraging. Management recognizes hard work as much as possible and rewards employees with outings and other perks.

    Pros

    Good stepping stone. Get experience and get out.

    Cons

    Terrible management. The same VP whose ineptitude and pettiness cascade down through the organization is still in place. Pay is poor, work is stressful, culture is toxic, products are antiquated and reflective of an inability to retain and develop talented, creative people. Business model is predatory, offering over-priced, mediocre-to-poor products to small businesses who know they need to advertise, but know very little about what good marketing entails. Honestly, you could find a better web designer on Craigslist.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more money, treat them better, and modernize. Cut the dinosaurs loose, or just fold the company.
