    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.

    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

    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.

    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 honestly just say here for 20 minutes trying to think of something positive about this experience and I couldn't.

    I got to visit Portland. That was cool, I guess.

    Cons

    * Too many "managers" and not enough leaders
    * There were maybe 4 people there who actually knew what their role is and what they're doing
    * Empty offices; lack of culture
    * No Christmas party; non-existent employee engagement
    * Pretty there were 5-7 VPs - Not really sure what they did all day or where their "offices" were located
    * Revolving door of employees
    * People got promoted for no reason
    * My role wasn't clearly defined when I was hired
    * My interview lasted 20 minutes and it was handled by a "VP" - Not even the person who was my boss or any of the people I directly ended up working with

    Advice to Management

    Stop calling yourself an ESP. Allow yourself to be acquired by someone who knows what they're doing. I can't even imagine who would bother though.

    Pros

    There are some great people who work for Yesmail and they have a broad range of clients. Offices around the country.

    Cons

    Confusing chain of command and resource allocation. Often times it seems as though promotions are based on "right place, right time" as much as merit.

    Advice to Management

    Put more resources into employee development and less into employee tracking.

    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.

    Portland offices are a bit quiet.
