    Pros

    Definitely an exciting place to work when you first come in, lots of cool events and cool employees

    Very intense cold calling sales structure that can definitely be extremely lucrative, but you have to be up for making ~150-200 calls a day minimum

    Pros

    Training was good but they have huge training classes and maybe one person will make it in the end.

    Cons

    I didn’t trust the product. The sales pitch wasn’t honest and I felt like a sleazy sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Does the marketing system really work for clients or are you pulling one over on the customers?

    I have been working at Yodle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office has a fantastic culture, both engineering-wise and extracurricularly. One of the best things is the management's willingness and desire to listen to criticism and act on it.

    When I onboarded the experience wasn't great. This was after some organizational changes, so they were aware that there might have been an issue. Some of us were very quickly involved in an effort to revamp the process. In the short time I've been here, I've already seen the fruits of that work result in a better onboard for new employees.

    The engineering work force here is grouped in to teams, guilds, and special interest groups. Teams own code/products, guilds are responsible for certain concepts and are embedded in teams, and special interest groups exist for interested employees to expand their knowledge in technologies that benefit the company as a whole.

    On the non-work side there's clubs and other various things. There's a run club, wine club, etc. Also, there is a healthy gaming community (both board and video) featuring a monthly game night. All these activities receive support from the company.

    Management is definitely interested in creating an environment where people want to be and work here as opposed to forcing folks to work long hours. Get your work done and have fun doing it!

    Cons

    I mentioned I had a rough onboarding process. Everything has been resolved now but it was still not something I'd want to go through again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Really good/supportive trainers as well as over training program. Awesome culture!

    I have been working at Yodle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun energetic youthful atmosphere. Free lunch and plenty of activities between actual work. Non-traditional business environment.

    Cons

    Lack experienced leadership with clear concise direction. Communication between sales and support staff is lacking which causes more work and less efficiency. Pay is low and benefits are not much better than what an individual can get on their own. Purchased by Web.com who is more concerned with acquiring other companies than making the employees they already purchased happy.

    Advice to Management

    Look at ways to make business more efficient. Stop trying things that result in higher cost of operation. Focus on being competitive in the employment market. Reduce turnover.

    Pros

    Amazing Environment with a great management team. Base pay is mediocre but there is a ton of money to be made through commission if you work hard!

    Cons

    The base pay would be the only con that I have, but I am not sure if that has changed at all.

    Advice to Management

    I thought management was great through my whole experience with the company!
