    I worked at YP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Salary and the people I worked with were great to be around.

    Cons

    For several years the company has been unstable because of bad Corporate leadership. For years the last CEO, brought in terrible leaders. Just because some. Of them had degrees from prestigious schools, but were terrible at running a business. I new CEO is just as bad, for the people he brought aboard are do nothing stoogies. All of the employees are afraid the company will be sold and everyone will face being laid off. Just like hundreds of people at yp recently were.

    I worked at YP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance

    Cons

    The organization has no direction. Too much change in short periods of time. Once one process is implemented, it changes the next day. The folks who are always in in the trenches, never get any recognition. Poor upper management. Poor Pay

    Advice to Management

    Take notice to the folks who work so hard and long hours to make the organization a successful.

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

    Pros

    Pros free snacks and coffee.

    Cons

    Disorganized upper management, too many pie in the sky ideas, horrible products no one uses, too many product managers for just one project. They talk a great game but deliver nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Advise get rid of upper management, make products people want (heck people there use YELP over the YP app, so what does that tell you about their product). Also about culture of the company, it does not have any. The guy in charge of that left for green pastures when he saw the writing on wall. This company is still stuck in the old A&TT mode trying to make its self as a start up, with unfortunately it still works under the tyranny of dead ideas.

    Pros

    both my immediate management team and my co-workers were great to work with.

    Cons

    there isn't a lot of room for advancement and the technology is stale

    Advice to Management

    as much as I enjoyed working here there is no room for advancement for people on the creative side of the advertising business. the platforms being used to create the landing pages is stale and really limits what can be done with a landing page. now that a lot of creative work is being outsourced of India, the quality of the landing pages is getting even worse and no one in upper management seems to be bothered. we get a lot of complaints/cancellations because the landing pages are not as robust as the competitors. take the time to listen to the creative team and work on creating products that are actually competitive in the marketplace instead of outsourcing outdated products that customers are clearly not happy with.
