    Pros

    Cons

    • Bad communication
    • Lack of growth opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Be more precise about the potential growth of the position and company. I saw a lot of people walk out the door for other's bad decisions.

    Pros

    Interesting work, for entry level
    Good management
    Flexible start times
    Convenient location

    Cons

    Pay is not fair market value, it's about 5K less than average
    Company is in a "return to growth" mode of operating. This means that before anything can be profitable, there will be cuts until growth happens.
    Tools are at least 5 years behind current market

    I worked at Yellow Pages full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You had some leeway with flex-time. Though your select hours were set, you were allowed to choose your time. They even offered employees the opportunity to work 4 days a week. The work was simple and mostly consistent. Every week or two was a team meeting where everyone could express their opinions about the work and suggest ideas to make things go smoother. Overall, this was a good company.

    Cons

    I did not like the down times. I'm someone who needs to be busy all the time, and though you were allowed the option to take online skill sessions (receiving a certificate upon completion), they were tedious at times. Though a good company, there wasn't much room to move up as they were in the process of cutting positions and bringing over employees from Canada to run management positions.

    Advice to Management

    None. They were all very welcoming, despite their titles.

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

    Pros

    Most of the employees seem pretty cool, they have a fairly laid back attitude and as long as you are pulling your weight you are pretty much free to go about your business. Fairly flexible schedules- pay was decent as well.

    Cons

    I felt that the benefits could be better- pick up more of the tab on the health insurance- because the employee shoulders most of the cost. There are lay offs from time to time- but more on the print side- so be wary of that... go for digital positions those are more likely to be stable.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to play favorites. It discourages others from wanting to try to move up in the company.

    "Great experience. But transition through ownership. At time not much mobility."
