Terrible Company
Digital Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAJune 19, 2017
Sabotage at the highest levels. Micromanaging at its best. Manager sabotages appointments and falsifies information to higher management. Forges signatures, and instructs employees to break code of ethics.

Good Place to work
Digital Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Henderson, NVJune 12, 2017
I enjoyed my time there until they closed there doors. It was high pressure sales job but that was to be expected. The work environment was fun and the managers seem to want you to be successful.

Wow
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Madison Heights, MIJune 6, 2017
Just lies non-stop. So bad..... Ask for everything in paper, ask for an employee handbook, ask them to explain how accounts are divided up. Ask them to be honest with you so you can watch them get all awkward because they are forced to lie.

Snacks

Digital Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 30, 2017
The job was difficult to succeed in and the companies management style was not organized or positive. Criteria for production was not clear. Benefits and pay was good. Good people worked there and help you throughout the process.

I love this company when it was AT&T but once YP LLC purchased it they did not care about the employee
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  CharlotteMay 29, 2017
Excellent company at first but once you know how to do your job well they are trying to get rit of you. The would like to hire new stafff instead of keeping senior reps. Management prefer turn over to keep base salaries low. I enjoyed being a union steward .

Worked with some very intelligent people and learned a great deal from my time there. I have not worked there since 2004 so I cannot comment on the current environment.

High stress, high reward
NEW MEDIA EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIMay 20, 2017
Yp is a daily head hunt to survive. The policies are set for continuous high achievement and the company definitely puts it's profits before it's people. Lots of paperwork and red tape but can be very financially rewarding

Learning new skills with Marketing and Advertising
Digital Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COMay 17, 2017
Cold calling and door knocking, presentations and prep. Learned some computer skills, Google Ad word certification, lots of new acronyms. Management seems competent. The workplace culture is work hard, play hard. A decent balance. Hardest part is the new products and services needed to master. Best part is still taking care of the customers needs with the most effective solution.

Advertising Sales
Consultant Business Development (Current Employee) –  Madison Heights, MIMay 14, 2017
Yellow Pages in my opinion is on a downward slope to becoming a dinosaur. I don't think it will even exist 5-8 years from now. They are downsizing offices, employees etc. Once that happens the handwriting is on the wall as far as the long term prognosis for the future. Fun place if your looking for a temporary quick fix and are in between career positions.

Very busydoing everything else but selling
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Worcester, MAMay 11, 2017
Very hard to get things done. The day is fragmented by doing so many non sales related tasks that there is little time for the actual sale and the prospecting of new potential clients.

A Company in Transition
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  Glendale, CAMay 8, 2017
YP is trying to reinvent themselves, from being a print publisher to a digital publisher. As a result, the company is going thru a lot of change in leadership, strategy, tactics, and focus. If you enjoy change and ambiguity this is a good fit for you

A highly motivated team culture that helps drive results.
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Tucker, GAMay 5, 2017
As an account manager, I am responsible for approximately $1.2 million. Our mission is to preserve and grow revenue with our customer base, and to increase new business revenue by adding new customers.

YP is a high energy workplace with a managerial staff that is very helpful in obtaining the desired results for the company.

Worse Place to Work EVER!
Content Management/Quality Proof Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tucker, GAMay 1, 2017
this place is a sinking ship. they are outsourcing all the jobs to india - and making the american workers go train the people who are taking their jobs, no less. their products are obsolete and don't work. the managers have no idea what they're doing, people get promoted only if they're somebody's buddy or pet. they've laid off too many people to get anything done stateside, so the few people left here are overworked and stressed out.

this place is a nightmare. i wouldn't send my worst enemy to this cesspit.
Pros
decent pay, benefits
Cons
every single thing else

Fun work environment
Senior Campaign Manager (Current Employee) –  Tucker, GAMay 1, 2017
YP is becoming the company that it needs to become. New CEO is quite amazing and management seems to be taking control the right way. A lot of changes have been made and those changes are making a positive impact on YP as a company.
Pros
Fun place to work at, a lot of flexibility, great benefits package, and awesome PTO.
Cons
Salary is a bit lower than competition.

terrible management
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Hoover, ALApril 30, 2017
The job is good but management makes it not worth taking the job. The first few months everyone enjoys the job and makes good money, but the way they have the pay structure set up you end up owing money. The management has their thumb on you at all times and treats you sub-human.
Pros
lots of time off
Cons
management

Not a place for career/long term job
Digital Operations (Former Employee) –  Tucker, GAApril 25, 2017
I've worked the 3 times and they are always laying off and rehiring. Many jobs are being outsource so they hire for short term. Managers are not there to help career growth.

often requires lots of defending the effectiveness off your product and long work days.
