    Pros

    Good introduction to the ESP and digital marketing space. President of the company has a great vision, and cares about employees.

    Cons

    Unfortunately that vision and the fact that he cares, does not always reflect on how other management feels. There are often different messages coming from different people to make the role very confusing. With no clear structure at all, it becomes very difficult to accomplish very simple tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Improved emphasis on training and development. More focus around company culture. Clear vision that all management can speak to and lead.

    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.

    Pros

    Work life balance is maximized. People are very willing to help at any time, even with things outside their scope.

    Cons

    Overly complex process for simple things. Gate keepers keep things complex.

    Advice to Management

    Straighten out an extremely complex process. Too many steps to get anything done. Automate, automate, automate! Use the computers to their fullest potential so the employees can help implement positive changes instead of just following complex procedures to get something simple accomplished.

    Pros

    The small team you work with will likely consist of some solid people.

    Cons

    The benefits are laughable. There's no room for growth. Some upper management is unwaveringly sexist. High turnover (for obvious reasons).

    Pros

    Laid back, decent people to work with.

    Lots of past turnover has contributed to a level of distrust.

    Let the people do their jobs, you have people here working for you who really love the company.

    Pros

    Flexible work-to-personal life ratio.
    Substantial resources are being put into product development.
    President has open door policy that more should take advantage of.
    Collaborative atmosphere.
    Getting MUCH better at communicating what's on the horizon.

    Cons

    Not the best health insurance.
    Need to show more value in office cultures.
    HR seemingly non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating plans and upcoming product info,
    Should consider setting up formal review processes. it's tough to encourage personal growth without a plan in place.

    Pros

    Good people trying to do the best they can with what they are given.

    Cons

    Upper management more concerned about acquisition than employee work/life balance and morale. A true revolving door environment that functions only due to its size.

    Advice to Management

    Try caring about your employees for once and focus on retaining them before they get fed up and leave.

    I worked at Yes Lifecycle Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice and smart people (who should all work where they are respected and valued - not at Yesmail). The pay check did cover my bills.

    Cons

    The cons are significant. No goals, no reviews, no pay increases, no promotions, awful “benefits”, minimal training, senior Infogroup and Yesmail executives are bullies and do not respect or value those working for the good of the company. The company meetings led by Infogroup CEO, Mike Iaccarino, are clearly an unwelcome chore and only leave you with a feeling of hopelessness and having been intimidated. Leadership is nearly non-existent - minus a few who hang on despite the circumstances. Decisions are made randomly and with no explanation or logic. There is no support system - there really isn't an HR dept, no administrative support, no supplies in the office, no one to actually talk to who could potentially be helpful, no fun, no culture, no sense or security or belonging to something significant, little to no respect, nothing. Advice to job seekers: See above.

    Advice to Management

    A complete change in attitude toward your employees - the ones making it all happen - would be a good step in the right direction.

    Pros

    The only positive aspect of working here was forming relationships with great people...who eventually leave the company.

    Cons

    If you love paying premium rates for less than average healthcare, thrive off of a nonexistent culture and mediocrity, and are excited at the opportunity to stunt your career, by all means accept a position at Yesmail/Yes Agency/Yes Lifecycle Marketing/whatever they are calling it these days.

    Upper management repeatedly takes on initiatives without direction. Employee training and basic documentation is nonexistent, which leads to extremely inefficient processes and loss of knowledge (especially given the high turnover). As many have already stated, there is no process in place for formal reviews and requests for standard workplace things, like cost of living salary increases, are immediately met with defense.

    I wouldn't tell my worst enemy to work here. Well maybe for a little while, then tell them to leave soon after.

    Advice to Management

    You're losing and not attracting talented people with the direction you've taken. Take care of your employees (or at least pretend to)...they're your best asset.
