    Pros

    Great people, great industry, good company to start with when getting into email marketing

    Cons

    Lack of training structure, things take too long- from service tickets to employee reviews, high turn over, low salaries (compared to industry standard), lack of team activities which results in low employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees

    I have been working at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, work from home policy

    Cons

    No job secure, lots of laying off here. Almost every month you see people leave, whether resigned or lay offs. Not much career growth, little to NO raise, don't even talk about bonuses. Also, long hours depending on which department you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Know how to keep your good employees. They worth more than your clients.

    There is no stability and no job security

    Pros

    The people are great, the work/life balance is excellent, and I've learned a lot in my time here. I've been exposed to a fair number of technologies that I'd never worked with before.

    Cons

    Let's face it, no one is excited about e-mail marketing (AKA spam). You'll also find yourself supporting lots of crappy legacy code. And developers have to work two-week support rotations where you're on call 24/7 (although thankfully, off-hours calls are fairly rare).

    Advice to Management

    Management could very easily improve morale by making pay and benefits more competitive.

    Pros

    Yesmail is an innovated company, really trying to push their products and employees to the next level. Everyone is very competent and great to work with.

    Cons

    The sister companies under Infogroup, that Yesmail works with are, are bloated with inefficiencies. These teams need to be modified to match the pace the online marketing space demands.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Yesmail is a great place to work for and moving in a great direction. Hopefully the sister companies won't bring this burgeoning company down.

    I worked at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at an ESP can be challenging, but the culture was laid back and made some great friends as I developed close relationships across many departments. There were long hours and being on call, but there was flexibility to work from home or take off when needed.

    Cons

    There was a lot of transition during my time there, so there were a lot of new executives brought in and there wasn't a lot of transparency about what they were brought in to do or were doing. It would have been nice to understand the direction of the company to make sense of some of the decisions that were being made.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more robust interview process to limit turnover and provide employee growth plans.

    I worked at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Can do the job with less technical experience.

    Cons

    High-demand clients and short timelines. Lack of opportunities in innovation and career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Update the Enterprise archaic javascript engine. Your Account Managers and Web Producers are your #1 users and customers for the Enterprise Product. Focus company changes around making their lives easier, and the customer will feel the same. Also, automate monitoring tickets. Noone wants to wake up at 3am and check the status of a deploying email.

    I have been working at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part it's very flexible and decent work/life balance. And with a few exceptions, most of the people I work with are good people - not all, but most. The absolute only reason I stay is the flexibility.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities. Horrible benefits. No yearly reviews - which means no raises. Some people seem checked out and just going through the motions.

    Advice to Management

    Get on board with normal corporate standards. I have never worked for a company who's CEO states in Town Hall meetings (on more than one occasion) that "We don't do reviews". If you think it's time for a raise, you have to beg your manager. That is ridiculous. If you want to keep people and reduce turnover - give us incentive to want to stay. Regular reviews. Standard pay increases. Decent 401k. This is a job, not a career.

    Pros

    good people, and technology - email industry is consolidating, you must have expertise in several areas. Data and big data technology could help their position.

    Cons

    willingness to change, look at new technology and marketing methods. Leverage the good resources you have (the people). Yesmail has had several re-org's in the past but i'm not sure if just changing management is the answer.
