Not a strong brand

Not nationally or globally recognized. Poorly managed. A small fish trying to compete with more recognized, and established firms in the advertising/marketing world

Good for resume building
Web Content Writer (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJuly 8, 2018
This company is good to get your foot in the door for a career in copy or web design. You learn pretty quickly on proper SEO and web design. They have aggressive goals and if you don't adapt quick, you won't last long here. Stay here for the experience.
Pros
SEO knowledge and web design courses
Cons
Job security

Continuously learning!
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Covina, CAJune 28, 2018
I learned to cold call effectively and close deal with the right tools as well as the efficient programs that are needed. The culture is team driven and continuously improving. The hardest part of the job was the competitiveness however I enjoyed helping customers benefits from the advertising we provide.

Stressful Production Environment
Cog (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAMay 17, 2018
You can clock out at the end of the day and leave your work behind if the daily production quotas don't stress you out. During the work day if you give them 10 jobs one day than they expect you to do 15 the next day. Overall the management is inexperienced but there are a few excellent managers in the rough.
Pros
Good place to get your foot in the door
Cons
Always kinks production flow and they tend to do things the hard way

No room for growth or advancement.
Marketing Internship (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAMay 17, 2018
friendly work environment for most teams but some, not so much.

No room for career advancement,and senior management not transparent with employees. It seemed that management worried more about how to make money quickly than the long term goal.
Pros
WFH opportunity

High stress and low pay
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 6, 2018
The company has restructured and let many managers go and now have changed the commission plan with the sales reps and have made it impossible to make what we were previously making. They micro manage you to deaf and have you make so many calls a day and get so many appointments that it stresses you and now there is no joy in this job.

Was a productive position until downsizing

Hibu was a good place to work but they fell behind with technology and stayed with the paper phone directories too long. Hibu's transition to digital media was too little, too late.
Pros
Had a stable customer base, base and commission
Cons
Fell behind with technology/stayed with paper directories too long

Good people, but the job got old and pay decreased.
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAApril 30, 2018
First year was great, but they changed a lot of their lead sources and pay decreased as the leads were not as “hot” as they previously were. Love all of my coworkers as they are great people and fun to be around each day, but my pay is significantly less than it was a year ago because of the commission structure.

Joined a Yellow Page advertiser as they transitioned out of their core business
Outside Sales Representative/Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 27, 2018
Hibu was Yellowbook when I started. They were known primarily as Yellow Page advertisers. With the advent of the internet and Smartphones in particular fewer and fewer people used yellow pages. Hibu tried to rebrand them elves and position themselves more as an internet and direct mail advertiser as well as a web-site developer.
Pros
Loved helping small businesses create ads and websites.
Cons
Trying to overcome the Yellow Page stigma was challenging

Hibu project failed
Publication Manager (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAApril 12, 2018
They started a project and failed.

It's hard to go into the words here because they laid off a hard-working staff after failing to provide help with the publications they created.

Wouldn't Reccomend
Online Marketing Specialist/ Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAApril 4, 2018
The company had a rigid time structure. The was no flex to your schedule and you had to stay in your cubicle. The management was very out of touch. Other employees complained about the leads, but that wasn't the problem; it was a lack of brand awareness.
