    Pros

    Our website is always looking its best. And website edits are made quickly. Always accurate with the best imagery and professional cohesive descriptions.

    Cons

    Vacations! Some times we have-em and so does our helpful Local Edge staff. But someone is always available to lend a hand if I need it.

    I worked at LocalEdge

    Pros

    You will meet some decent people.

    Cons

    Pay first and foremost. You can’t expect to continuously throw more work at your employees and not compensate even close to fair. No one in management knows what the hell they are doing that it trickles down the ladder and is an endless cycle, eventually leading you to hate your job even more and eventually you will quit. The turnover rate here is something that should be a huge red flag. All previous negative reviews are not exaggerating, it really is that bad. If you are looking for a toxic, dirty , and unmanageable environment, then LE is for you! If you are a regular person who deserves to be treated with respect by your employer- run.

    I worked at LocalEdge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flex time is amazing. Probably the best thing about the job. Good experience and good trainings.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, and they don't even cover a basic health plan as consolation. You're basically making minimum wage to do a ridiculous amount of work that goes completely unnoticed. Workload would be more manageable without monthly calls to/from clients, but all in all it's hard to finish on time and get QUALITY work done for each campaigns. The clients are truly being cheated in this system. Social environment is cliquey and weird - a lot of adults who act like teenagers. Just a general lack of recognition/respect for certain departments, and an inflated sense of worth for the sales team (who are never reprimanded, or so it seems, when they make mistakes that always reflect poorly on other employees).

    Pros

    Not too stressful and people are great. Some decent benefits but job isn't too much to handle

    Cons

    Employees aren't really valued. It's a company to build resume and experience and they know that so they don't invest too much time, effort or money into current employees - especially right out of college
