    I have been working at LocalEdge (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The amount of money we make in this market is crazy to other jobs in our industry. The Erie manager is fantastic. She is a challenger and pushes you to succeed. Great benefits (health Insurance, Vacations, Excused Absence Time).

    Cons

    It's a tough work load. Lots of tasks to juggle. Makes you learn to be organized. It is sales.

    Advice to Management

    More fantastic digital products to grow our current book of business and expand our reach into our communities.

    Pros

    Great, hard-working people
    Outings every once and awhile (you have to pay for yourself though)
    Easy commute from buffalo
    Mostly... just the people

    Cons

    Office is an old school building and it's falling apart
    Discouraging atmosphere
    No room for growth
    low pay
    No one listens to your concerns
    No changes are made, despite requests
    Software is out of date
    No company adaptability

    Localedge is a great start for those right out of college, but there is no opportunity for career growth here.

    The people I work with are beyond amazing, they are hard workers and genuinely care about the products and the customers. Unfortunately, upper management and sales are extremely greedy and do not consider the quality of the product, just the profits they make. The upper management "babies" sales and acts like they are incapable of doing simple tasks.

    They make it extremely difficult to have your voice heard and if you do speak up about an issue, they say they'll do their best but never actually act on it. Not to mention, the work you put in is RARELY noticed by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    I promise, if you just listened to what your employees have to say and make the changes they want, this entire company would be much more successful. Quit "factory marketing" and start caring about the quality of the products, rather than how much money you're making.

    Put your employees first and your success as a company will follow. However, if you continue to go at the rate you're going... your employees will continue to leave and products will be mediocre at best.
