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

    Advice to Management

    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Opportunity to make a lot of money if you drink the kool-aid and fit with the atmosphere

    Cons

    Pay is basically strictly based on commission and it's cold calling. They also blare music all day and it's pretty distracting

    Pros

    Not a great product but is as good as other options out there. Subs are fickle so it's tough to make them happy even with a great product. If you're looking for a sales and service environment to cut your teeth in Yodle is a good option.

    Cons

    It's tough selling to and servicing smbs. The expect the world and don't have the resources to wait for results to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the product and service instead of always focusing on the top line revenue.

    Pros

    Fun culture and work environment.

    Cons

    Sales leads are sub-par and the company mandates sticking to a script even when going off of it would be more likely to result in a sale.

    Pros

    The individuals that worked at Yodle were great. I really enjoyed my direct team members.

    Limited resources in terms of leads
    If you're not "buddy buddy" with management, they will not assist you
