    ReachLocal is an energetic and inspiring company to work for. You are rewarded for hard work and there is plenty of career progression. The people make the company what it is and really care for not only fellow employees but clients also.

    Cons

    The RL platform has limitations some of which are basic functions that have become essential to search.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the primary search platform as its starting to fall behind.
    Provide management training to managers.

    Pros

    The people i work with every day are amazing. Everyone really cares about how they can help our clients grow their business. If you have an idea which can improve our business then it is welcomed from any member of staff and personally i have had several initiatives launched Europe wide.

    Cons

    The workload is massive and never stops!! We are investing in so many new processes and workflows that it can overwhelm you with change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple, act faster with initiatives. Incentivise the service team more. More sharing between countries on good practice.

    I have been working at ReachLocal full-time

    Pros

    Have been part of the ReachLocal family for over 4 years and its been a fantastic ride. I've learnt and grown my experience and skill, not just in the digital space but personally. As an international business ReachLocal has provided me with the opportunity to grow my career abroad and this is real pro for working in an international business with local teams and offices.
    The industry is ever changing and ReachLocal has continued to stay true to its roots by investing in technology to keep us on the Edge and ahead of the competition.
    After four years I continue to wake up every day and look forward to coming to work and that is a real joy. The team is like a family and supportive of each other and when you enjoy the company and support of your colleagues it makes work enjoyable.

    Cons

    Its a challenging industry to work in at times, but ReachLocal is well positioned to stand out in the market.

    Advice to Management

    As a maturing growth business stay true and maintain the culture that makes ReachLocal such a unique place to work.
