National Sales Coordinator/Sales Support (Former Employee) – Amherst, NY – July 26, 2017
I loved working for LOCALEDGE but they downsized so our whole department was strategically let go including my boss. I would have retired there but no one uses the phone book anymore so they had no choice but to start making cuts.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Amherst, NY – May 7, 2016
Worked with a team of great people we worked together well. Managers were of great help keeping the teams of workers happy. The work place's were kept up clean and well organized. Time in and out were overseen by manager. Promotion opportunities were offered in house first.

this place had new management as i was on my way out, but I loved working with my manager and trainer. the old coworkers that were there before i was hired were horrible and hateful. they attacked anyone new and tried to undermine the new management.

They are not the nicest people to work with. They treat you like they own you, just because they give you a salary. They say they can make you work when ever they want. They do not believe in the fact that a sales team is how they make their money.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – North Carolina – September 22, 2014
Saw it from both ends, management and sales rep. Upper management is unsure of itself. They react, instead of act, They are losing a lot of business to companies that have products and services that work. They don't value experience, band put too much emphasis on young college grads over experience and loyalty. This is why turnover if so rampant. You can have six months of great sales, miss a month and a half and you're gone. They brought in execs from another company, even the guy the other company pushed out. Now how smart was that? Now LocalEdge can't seem to shoot straight.
Digital Account Coordinator (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 10, 2014
I worked for this company for a couple of years in a few different departments. Each was pretty different, and each had their up's and down's. Often times volumes were pretty high due to strict deadlines. Procedures were often changed and roles and responsibilities were switched around when things weren't working. Sometimes, the changes were no better. In some cases, there was a bit of micromanagement going on that was usually bad for employee morale. Also, lots of repetition in each position, often leading to some burnout due to lack of variety in each role.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – January 9, 2014
I was able to start my career in sales through LocalEdge and learned a lot of the technical aptitude for sales through this job. I worked with a great team of co workers and some superiors. It was good to see clients and their operations first hand.
Digital Marketing Executive (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 15, 2013
They offered a great product and for 5 years I was able to perform above quota requirements and received many bonuses. In April 2013 I was called to the corporate office to participate on an advisory board. In August 2013 a new president took over from outside the company and on August 30, 2013 60 of us were let go. I would be hard put to recommend this company.
