    I worked at ReachLocal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Company's accounting department for 2 years. During the time, the Company was going through restructuring and experienced a fair amount of employee turnover. Throughout the challenging process, I learned a great deal especially dealing with the constant change.

    Cons

    In the end, the Company was acquired and my position, along with many other positions, were eliminated as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I had a positive work experience and I believe management did the best they could.

    I worked at ReachLocal full-time

    Pros

    Great digital online product offerings. Above and beyond with training. They really helped me prepare for selling to business owners.

    Cons

    Felt like another number. Very challenging sales goals. Almost impossible to hit at times. They need to be more realistic when considering selling in the Midwest market. Very different then TX, CA and some larger markets.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more of an environment that helps an employee feel like they are empowered. There needs to be more tools provided. More one on one.

    great income and growth opportunities

    It was private so the investment in future products and technology was a bit slow but now that Gannett bought them there is great investment into the future.

    Pros

    Since Gannett bought them, they will probably remain afloat for some time.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. They do not promote people from within.
    Huge workloads. Expect a mass exodus.
    Misleading and false promises from the company and management.
    No company culture.
    Low compensation.
    Not much paid time off.
    They fire everyone who puts in a two-week notification.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Your not salesmen trying to trick your employees into staying with delusions of grandeur, false promises and excited-yet-trite corporate speeches.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, casual dress code, unlimited vacation, reasonable control to manage my department and implement change

    Cons

    Lack of support from management, felt ignored, eight bosses in five years, no guidance on expectations. The only "feedback" was from negative treatment. I made considerable improvements to my area which was appreciated when founders we there but the upkeep efforts were forgotten and unrewarded. Each new boss was like starting a brand new job so I was constantly required to prove my worth. I left for these reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Don't under value your employees and show appreciation especially those in key roles outside of sales. I managed a Dept that required many hours of overtime and working on holidays when everyone else was home with their families. There was no acknowledgement of the hard work and sacrifices we made. Promotions and raises are great but even a simple "Thank You" goes a long way.
