    Pros

    - Some people are very good at what they do
    - They make you feel welcome when you start
    - Pay is not bad

    Cons

    - No training provided
    - Managers never have your back
    - No direction or career growth
    - Upper management does not care about staff
    - No transparency with policy
    - If their clients don't like you, you'll be gone before you can blink
    - Don't waste your time with this company, unless you don't have any other option. Get out as soon as you have something better in hand.

    I have been working at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time

    Pros

    The company has always been very flexible with me. I am currently working remotely and really enjoy my team members. Being a working mom, I feel like my work/family life balance is good which is the most important thing to me.

    Cons

    I do feel the company could do more in regards to showcasing the talented people we have working here and provide greater efforts for employee appreciation.


  3. "Overall you learn but very hard with difficult managers."

    Pros

    You can work from home. Pto is great. Nice kictchen. They buy breakfast once a week. It is crap anyways.

    Cons

    You can work from home, but the amount of work you get, you wont finish. Managers suck. New york office is very dramatic. The higher ups do not give you right even if you are. The client will and can get away with anything and employees get blamed. No employee recognition. No raise. No bonus. They overwork you and harrass you on weekends and late nights. You talk about moving into a better position and they will say sure but no action. This place is full of it.

    I have been working at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay well (in the beginning) and they are pretty flexible on work from home policies.

    Cons

    Total lack of a company culture.
    No diversity.
    Managers tend to undermine their direct reports.
    They love to outside hire, so very little room for upward mobility. "Move on to move up" is the general consensus.
    Large up front salary offer but no guaranteed raise or bonus structure. i.e., They don't take care of their employees. Make for very poor retention.
    No effort to hire women. IT managers were overheard saying they'd never hire a woman in a development role.
    Office is outdated and an extremely depressing environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage. Learn how to onboard. Learn how to RETAIN employees.

    Pros

    Pretty chilled out atmosphere, flexible timings, scope for learning new technologies.

    Cons

    Mostly people want to work from home or teams are in other offices. So not lot of interaction with your co workers.

    Pros

    Great workmates, work from home when you want, great clients.

    Cons

    For a company who's mission statement states that the people are its most important assets they seem to actively work against that. People on the ground are badly treated and managed. Terrible mid management who are not accountable and undermine their reports.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your mission statement. Stop putting unskilled people in charge of teams and letting them run all over hard workers.

    Pros

    The local team are a hard working and dedicated bunch of people who really work hard. Good work from home policy. Independence from head office and from anyone else for that matter

    Cons

    Management is in a world of their own with very little leadership and no guidance except when something goes wrong and they are looking for someone to blame. Terrible benefits and low morale. If you want to stagnate this is a great place if you keep your head down.

    Advice to Management

    You have some great employees but don't support them and nobody has any direction.

    I worked at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Liberal Work From Home Policy because there’s really no good reason to go to an empty drab office. Can be a initially exciting for new grads to learn new skills, but after the honeymoon they learn nothing really changes and especially for then.

    Cons

    Senior Management has zero people skills in engaging with mature adults and their Human Resources are completely detached from the organization and has no idea what is going on in any of the offices. Most of the hires come from failed experiences from senior management, so once again, don’t expect progress or change.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother, they won't take advice anyway.

    Pros

    I do work with a few great people.

    Cons

    - below average benefits
    - no reviews
    - no career development
    - no raises unless you beg
    - being part of Infogroup and having their CEO set the tone for the horrible culture here
    - employee turnover
    - lack of communication and direction
    - lack or recognition of any kind for hard work
    - the HR department has turned overs so many times since I have been here and I am not even sure we have an HR department anymore
    - constant change on basic things like our name - we can't even get that straight - Yesmail Interactive? Yesmail? Yes Lifecycle Marketing? Who are we?

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people for their hard work so the good ones stop leaving! Get us out from under Infogroup.
