    Pros

    Income Potential, Free snacks, Beer fridays

    Micro Managed, 150+ Calls daily with no reward to quality just wants quantity, Basic websites with no individuality

    Educate on quality calls, Educate a little at least on the style of website and structure of real SEO so your managers don't have to relay during calls to sales rep causing numerous delays, chargebacks, and numerous other issues.

    Pros

    Direct managers seem to have your best interest in mind. They will do everything they can for you. Its not a bad place to dip your feet into cold calling

    Cons

    Upper management seems to play more for the corporation, not the employees.
    Lots of small changes have been happening since being bought by web.com.

    Pros

    Managers truly care about developing you in the direction you choose at Yodle. Best training there is and a cash cow for making 60K+. Requires patience and a desire to learn the product intimately. Once you have had enough exposure, the process is fairly simple.

    Cons

    High pressure sales. You will learn the strong-arm sales tactics here and which tends to be the bread and butter that runs the operation. No matter how good a product you have, there are always a couple people you feel may not have been a good fit but sold them anyways to get commissions. CS and Retention have huge hurtles to leap to retain your clients.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome! As you transition, keep the culture present... high pressure sales needs a release and you are the #1 person they look to for motivation.
