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

    Pros

    Big contemporary building, free fattening lunches.

    Cons

    Extremely low base, silly unprofessional environment. Very loud hard rock and rap music that plays constantly starting at 8am. It felt like a cult. 38 people started in my training class and by the time training was over it was about 15. The absolute worst job I ever had. They force force force a script. I give it a ZERO STAR. You'll get paid more working at McDonalds.

    Advice to Management

    You can do better if you tried.

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

    Pros

    Met some lifelong friends. The potential to make serious money is there.

    Cons

    The base pay is not enough to sustain a living. It's hard work and you're rewards are dictated by your ability to perform within the box they've created. Not many people can do it. And many sales are made to spite the value brought to SMB's.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who perform above the rest and fire people that are not right for the job...too many hopefuls are strung along to meet metrics.

    I worked at Yodle full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, solid pay, unlimited time off, startup-y culture, easy to get to location, and plenty of in-office amenities - such as bean-bag chairs, standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    In my particular function, it was not easy to get what I needed from other departments. I had to go through my boss to make other people give me what I needed.

    Advice to Management

    Make a higher transparency in the needs of roles so time is not wasted going through middlemen to get the necessary data/information.

    Pros

    The intense yet comfortable training requirements, the down to earth laid-back atmosphere made work fun and exciting and made it comfortable for everyone to be who they are everyday.

    Cons

    In the beginning I was told no competition dance employees which two times can make working difficult because some people are a little more competitive than others . However it could not have been a more competitive company and I understand competition can be healthy, but it was thrived upon more than. We were less on to believe in the interview and orientation.
