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

    Pros

    The two stars represent the many fine people who were employed there. We had a great staff in Indianapolis. Benefits were actually better than most.

    Cons

    Incredibly slow to react to market trends. Went digital way too late which will eventually kill the company.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for this. Hundreds of employees have been laid off - jobs sent overseas.

    I worked at Yellow Pages full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with day-to-day, the average employees, really do seem to care about their jobs.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to have no idea what they are doing and are not connected enough to what goes on with day-to-day employees to figure it out. They had a real chance to make their business work and couldn't stick with one road map long enough to follow through.

    There's almost no opportunities for advancement and even if you do take one you have no idea if that job will exist in a year.
