    I worked at Yodle full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    Pros

    Great vibes. Free Lunch. Constant ways to make $$$. The training managers have excellent experience and know how to help you succeed if you implement you're training.

    Cons

    Training. And finding your groove. There's so many materials to follow it is sometimes hard to find where to go to the next script. Also, computer practice isn't the easiest for me.

    Pros

    Yodle is a great company overall. They provide in depth training, along with a work culture that is always fun and engaging.

    Cons

    The learning curve can be difficult for some employees. Overcoming objections, company cold-call reputations, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees that represent the company in a positive way. Keep a close rapport with representatives by creating a transparent company environment.

    Pros

    Set schedule
    freedom to use your phone and go to the restroom without "approval"

    Cons

    Cold Calling. No matter what you do it's\ extremely hard to make someone show up for an appointment.
    If you really want to make money, you have to spend ALOT of extra time in the office.

    I worked at Yodle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They feed you lunch
    It's M-F
    Fun atmosphere most of the time

    Cons

    Base is low
    Sales are up and down
    Summers tend to be VERY slow
    Not enough one-on-one attention
    Residuals could be better

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're managers spread their time as evenly as possible between employees.
    During trainings stop taking entire groups in to listen to calls that are bad and tell them It's nothing personal. It doesn't help your people it only creates an uncomfortable situation for them. Do that one on one with a manager.

    I have been working at Yodle full-time

    Pros

    Several perks: Very nice facility, free lunch, on-site messeus, food trucks.....

    Cons

    Although the company does the best it possibly can to mitigate for it, phone sales (cold calling) isn't for everyone, and the constant rejection can shake even the most confident person.

    Advice to Management

    Turn the enthusiasm down just a notch - seriously, what anit-depresents are you guys taking?
