Obtained a very valuable experience due to the company's environment and fellow employees. One of the most enjoyable parts of the job was working with such likable employees, though the hardest part of the job was abiding by both best buy's and Marketstar's policies.

A great place to work
Studio Operations Manager-Production Manager (Current Employee), Mountain View, CAOctober 22, 2014
Pros: free breakfast, lunch and dinner and free shuttle to work and back.
Cons: hard to advance in your career and few raises given.
Google is a great company in many aspects but as far as career growth it's not very good because of the hundreds of thousands of people that work there.

Video Production changes constantly so the day to day changed all the time. It was never the same.

Co-workers were awesome. Very team oriented.

There wasn't really a hard part of the job. Everything – more... was enjoyable. – less

“Worst Media Company I have ever worked for period! ”
Premier SMB Partner (Current Employee), Culver CityOctober 16, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule work/life balance good people on the ground floor.
Cons: in a phrase, the company is the "dmv of media companies".
Pros

Flexible Schedule work/life balance
Good people on the ground floor meaning the heart and soul of the respective sales team

Cons

In a phrase, the company is the "DMV of Media Companies".
They infantilize their sales teams with silly trainings and sales tactics that do not help in the field.
Between call blitzes and micro management by managers – more... they create a very combative sales culture.
Managers set expectations and unrealistic goals that no one meets in the organization.
Nepotism and discriminatory favoritism are common place at ReachLocal.

Advice to Management

Change the current sales structure and culture of ReachLocal. – less
