Senior Specialist-Business Services (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 15, 2014
The good: The work environment at YPG was great. The setting was very relaxed and casual, with the majority of employees being friendly and helpful.
The bad: My department, along with others, was eliminated due to a restructuring of the company. We were previously assured that we would have positions, and within a month an announcement was made that we would in fact not have positions. We were given false hope that "new projects" or opportunities would become available. They were not.
Computer Room Manager (Former Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – August 1, 2016
The culture of the company was okay. The people were great and most looked forward to working everyday. The projects and daily operations were challenging enough that there was never a dull moment in a day.
I loved the schedule and my coworkers. The management and product was horrible. The work environment minus the managers was terrific. The only con is that no matter how much you sell you will have zero job security.

Bilingual routing specialist (Former Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – December 2, 2015
This job was not bad but not great. The pay was wonderful but the job itself was boring. I sat in front of dual computer screens for 8 hours a day 5 days a week reviewing print ads in English and/or French. It got boring fast. There also didn't seem like much room for advancement.
Good coworkers, good pay, not too stressful
Short lunch, very rigid schedule, repetitive tasks
Graphics Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 13, 2015
Managed workflow process and day-to-day employee engagement and training. The environment was enjoyable, but some departments were not as connected as they could be due to the natural disconnect between locations. I learned a lot about how to apply Six Sigma processes in an office environment.
Senior Advertising Consultant (Current Employee) – St.louis, MO – September 22, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. The most enjoyable part of the job is working alongside my colleagues and learning from them.
Sterile work environment with little advancement opportunity
Listing Services Representative (Former Employee) – Blue Bell, PA – September 21, 2015
My department was in charge of setting up basic phone book entries with little to no advertisement attached. I sat in a cubicle with a stack of paper and typed the same information over and over. Talking was discouraged on the floor and employees were encouraged to wear headphones to listen to music. While I enjoyed being able to listen to my own music choices, I grew bored of the monotony day after day. The on location management did try to make things more lively. We had holiday parties when able and individual department managers brought in breakfast or dinner items if overtime was mandatory.
Account Executive/Sales (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – September 21, 2015
A typical day of work consisted on making calls to handle advertising campaigns for small and medium size businesses. I learned a lot about developing interpersonal relationships with clients while providing excellent consultation. On average, we would be required to handle a certain objective for each month. The hardest part of the job is the ability to overcome objections and the most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I helped a business continue to grow.
Loader/Clerk (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – August 13, 2015
Working with our carriers, making calls, inventory, and filing. I enjoyed this job for the most part, what got to me was the heat since this is a temporary summer job and it gets pretty hot. My boss albeit weird was a blast to work for.
Operations Manager - National Digital Operations (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – August 12, 2015
My experience in working at YP was very pleasant. Projects were regularly popping up which created opportunities for growth and new work experience. I was never held to one specific duty which eliminated the day to day monotony that is often found in a corporate environment.
