I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    Horrible Pay, Workload & Culture

    Pros

    I had a great department manager and coworkers when I worked there. The flex time and vacation time nice. Good experience for first job.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. When I started entry level pay was $31,500. Got a promotion with no salary increase. Yearly raises were 1% if you were lucky. What a joke. Management does not care about employee or client retention. They see employees as replaceable. They pay talented people straight out of college basically minimum wage. They get their experience and move on because the company does nothing to make people want to stay. Sales over promises what clients get with their services purchased. This leads to upset clients and unhappy strategists that have to deal with clients with unmanageable expectations. Workload is too high. This leads to crappy content being produced just to get it done. Management could care less about quality as long as it gets done. No room for advancement and high turnover.

    Pros

    Commission Potential, Co-workers were supportive, opportunities to learn if you went out of your way to ask for them

    Cons

    Sales employees had high turn over, ridiculous management style and treatment. Toxic sales environment. New ideas and approaches not always welcomed. Did not care or invest much in sales team, they lost many good employees because of it.

    Pros

    1. Good training 2. Decent performing products 3. Average Pay - Living Wage In Our Market 4. Kevin Pavelski - man successfully keeps a Yellowpage company hitting their goals while also developing a digital plan that works. 5. Some amazing people. We have had some industry leaders in sales come through our offices.

    Cons

    1. Shifting compensation plan - same work less money - Good talent leaves 2. Print. I get that it is profitable for the company, but it is a losing proposition. 3. Lower level programs do not get results like they did 7-8 years ago. Technology has passed them by and they haven't met the changes. 4. More times than not, promotions are given to "yes" men/women rather than people that can actually precipitate change.

    Pros

    Top performing sales executives compensated well

    Cons

    Entire leadership team needs replaced with leaders who understand the internet rather than former phone book super stars. CEO has very little involvement with anyone or anything having to do with localedge aside from the once a year town hall.
