The company is serious trouble with the decline of print results
Account Representative (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: established relationships with clients
Cons: poor product results and poor fulfillment of digital media
The management team is brutal to work for and big on punitively punishing their sales people for local clients canceling advertising. During my time with the company they changed publication dates of phone directories without telling their sales team then when the project was nearly completed asked the sales team to go back and tell the client they are enacting a clause in the contract to extend the billing of the old contract by 3 months. This put the sales people in a very bad light with the local businesses. I would not recommend this company.

I loved helping peoples business through a great advertising program
Customer Service & Sales Representative History (Former Employee), Seattle and various different citiesJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: putting together a sucessful advertising program for my clients
Cons: getting a lot of no's
My day was at least 10 hours a day I. I would spend the morning making sure I had all the correct information that I would need about my customers business and his competitors to make sure I could put together the best possible program for my customer.

Over the thirteen years I did advertising I learned that when I had the customers business need first the better I did. I always enjoying sharing sales ideas with my co-workers. I often found my got some of the best ideas from a co-worker

The hardest part of sales is of course ; however the best part is closing a big sales that I had worked very hard on

competitve sales culture, customer focused mentality
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee), Honolulu, HIJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: $'s revolve around your performance; sales tools and management readily available; great hours, benefits, and holiday pay
Cons: none; any job is stressful and requires hard work to succeed
The Berry Company is one of the best Nationwide companies to work for if you are looking for a sales and customer service job. When I started in June 2014, I was not 100% sure that I would like being in an office setting all day and being on the phone, although there is a Outside Sales Rep position. I was so used to taking care of customers in person. It took me a good 3 months to get comfortable with my job,but I absolutely love it today! Once you gain knowledge of the Hawaiian Telcom directory regulations, online marketing and advertising products, and LocalVox, everything becomes a breeze. You become 100% focused on getting to know the customer and which of our products best fit their business needs. You are paid salary plus commissions. Your performance pays off, and it starts with the customer. You are apart of a team and new competitive opportunites are given to help you earn more $'s. Management today cares about their employees. They drop what they are doing to help you in the time of need. If you don't have a need to succeed, then this job is not for you. The job has a lot of growth opportunites around every corner.

Great place to work
customer relations representative (Former Employee), 3100 Research Boulevard Dayton OH 45420September 12, 2014
Pros: fair and impartial treatment. relaxed environment.
Cons: not having enough hours in the work day to finish everything you would like to finish.
Good People, nice management, interesting job. The hardest part of the job was juggling the phones with all of the side work that had to be done for each customer. Being able to help customers or give assistance to a fellow worker was the most rewarding part.

Stay Away - Far Away
Employee (Former Employee), High Point, NCSeptember 5, 2014
This is not a company that you want to work for. Sales positions are micro-managed, account distribution is not fair, and management is unorganized and ineffective.

The products they sell are outdated, websites beyond basic, and commission is ridiculous.

There's no loyalty to employees, and there seems to be no clear direction from the top - other than produce at all costs.

Great Company
Sales Executive (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: good compensation and recognition. decent benefits
Cons: unrealistic expectations and high turnover.
The Berry Company handled the advertising for The Real Yellow Pages before AT&T purchased it in 2006. It had a great family feel to the company and treated their employees well. The compensation and recognition for exceeding expectations was outstanding. The Berry Company then became AT&T Advertising and was then sold to Cerberus, an investment firm, in 2012 and is now known as YP Holdings LLC.

Loved The Berry Company!
Corporate Awards Manager/Budget Analyst (Former Employee), Dayton, OhioJune 6, 2014
Pros: everything!
Cons: that a great company was bought by another company that didn't know how to run a company
I loved every position I had Berry. Unfortunately, the company was bought out by LIM of Denver and my position was transferred to Denver Colorado to another person there. Outsourcing was big with this LIM.

Not a good culture
anonymous (Current Employee), High Point, OHJune 4, 2014
Pros: life/work balance, great co-workers
Cons: heavily micro-managed, upper management is not on same page for success of company, very low base with commission
Call center type of environment for inside sales and micro-managing from upper management. Co-workers are great and make the day go by quickly.
There are some internal issues that will prevent success in High Point until leadership is changed.
