Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 4, 2015
Stuck to the computer on phones all day strictly staring at a computer and phone for all 8 hours. Most the time longer to put down deals. if you don't mind that they compensate you pretty fairly.

Great place to begin a career in a fast paced young environment.
Marketing Associate Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 6, 2015
The company strives to keep the culture young, energetic, and enjoyable. It actually feels, for the most part, genuine. But because so many people want to work there, they are able to offer lower salaries which can be frustrating for those that have friends in similar positions with companies in similar fields.

A lot of our job is done through an in-house API but since I have been promoted I deal more with the logistics of the day to day as well as managing personnel.
Pros
Free lunches, camaraderie, good work/life balance.
Cons
Low pay, movement can be difficult.

Fun and energetic place to work
Small Business & Marketing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 16, 2015
Contacting small business owners for consultation with Online-Marketing.
I was able to learn beneficial organizational skills to keep track of various accounts. I also was able to develop basic salesperson services while sharpening my communication skills.
Management did a great job of thoroughly training and expressing employee expectations.
Co-workers as well as the overall energy was great. Everyone showed great team comradery on a daily basis.
Hardest part of the job is effectively communicating the customer.
The high energy and atmosphere is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Fun work enviroment for a very stressful job
Sales Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 11, 2015
A typical day consisted of making outbound calls to attorneys and insurance agents in attempt to sell them online advertising. Unfortunately, we had to adhere to a strict call script, and we never were taught about the actual product and packages we were selling. Management was average, while fellow co workers seemed to want to help whenever possible.

It is a call center with an aggressive approach to cold calling. It is not a fun thing to do, however management and coworkers do their best to keep things fun.

high stress
sales rep (Current Employee) –  austinApril 14, 2015
Make about 150 cold call dials a day. It depends on which segment you have to call, but you can get burned out with the job really quickly. Most of the time it may not be you, but rather the segment your calling.

Constant fear of getting fired if you dont meet the minimum, and they don't tell you this at the beginning of the job. some people move across the country for this... shady.

Sales Development Rep (Contracted) (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 5, 2015
It was very rewarding to be able to perform SWAT analysis for various small companies. It was my responsibility to be able to provide customer satisfaction with a professional and prompt manner and come up with a marketing plan while trying to stick to sales quota.

Telemarketing with questionable sales tactics.
sales (Former Employee) –  austinMarch 23, 2015
The people are great there, but the job is awful. It's set up as a two call close with pushy rebuttals to get the credit card from the customer.
The first call is to ask for 10 mins to give the presentation which usually takes 45 mins to an hour.
Pros
the people and environment
Cons
scripts, pushy and deceptive sales tactics.

Great vision but lacks preparation
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 26, 2015
Yodle is a good company to help any one understand the Online Marketing Industry a bit better. They are always developing new ways to incorporate the latest marking trends into their product set.

Most of the managers care for their agents and want to see them to succeed. There is a good combination of hard work and positive reinforcement to ensure that clients needs are handled correctly and efficiently.

The only opportunity is that the company maintains a "Leap Before They Look" mentality which may lead to discovering new achievements but at times has negative impact on the front line employees.

Care about the employees as much as you care about your clients and the company would reap the rewards.
Pros
free lunches, employee appreciation days
Cons
micro management, aggressive accountablity

Great work environment with a superior marketing platform.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 23, 2015
A typical day at Yodle includes making 100-150 cold calls to SMB owners identifying areas of opportunity for ROI and increased exposure for their business.

During my time with Yodle I've learned the psychology involved in sales. I've learned how to listen to clients chief concerns and how to address them proactively.

Management is comprised of knowledgeable men and women who are not only subject matter experts on our platform but also experienced closers. They have proven to be proficient in using logic to minimize clients concerns.

The most difficult aspect of the job is that in order to be successful you have to be self motivated. Your success is predicated on that days performance.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the atmosphere and culture.
