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

    Pros

    - Nice, techy, start up culture
    - Beer on Fridays
    - Free snacks
    - Cool, young employees

    Cons

    - Pay is horrendous. I have never been so insulted when receiving a paycheck from this place. Even as a high performing sales rep, because the product and price point is so low, you are only taking home $2000-$3000 per month. The top tier reps get paid out 100% of their revenue in commission, which is usually max $5k a month. You can make 3 or 4 times that amount working a job with less anxiety and pressure and ZERO cold calling. Yodle sells itself to new employees by saying the earning potential is "uncapped" which is why their base salary is $20,000 (the same as the NYC poverty line, FYI), and in theory, it IS uncapped. But you still make next to nothing.
    - Cold calling hell. No one likes cold calling, not matter how much they lie to you. It's tedious, it's exhausting, its not rewarding, and it's furthering an agenda of a fledgling company who is focused on using people to stay afloat, without developing them.

    Pros

    The culture was positive, there were consistent/weekly sales contests to increase motivation in the sales department, team contests, residual bonuses were always essential to have and expect and would keep the sales associates on top of their client's campaign performances, they offer benefits: health, dental, vision, 401K (no match), they do weekly trainings for all of the sales departments to help increase sale's awareness and help each other get up to speed, they offer a fair amount of PTO (accrued), they are pretty fair with overtime

    Cons

    If you are unable to get to the office early (before your shift starts) because you have family priorities, it seems like they aren't extremely accepting in that respect, many individuals have flexibility to get to the office early and start their day early and stay late (that's great for sales, the environment and the nature of all of it) others have families and a lot of things happen as you may have growing children

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has strengths and weaknesses in respect to their skill set, people could benefit more if their strengths aren't overlooked, maybe they need to do something different, like switch to a different department
