    Not interested in building relationships with business owners. Force accounts to certain "key" reps. Constant turnover. Mgmt has hard time motivating sales reps and resorts to threats and intimidation to force sales activity.

    I worked at Supermedia full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    great salary and benefits for employees. really nice people to work with and had some opportunity for growth. Experienced staff at most levels.

    Cons

    poor leadership with very little insight, management was out of touch with the reality of the work place, a lot of focus on avoiding layoffs with little thought towards listening to the employees.

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot there. Lots of good people have worked there over the years.

    Cons

    Priorities change there multiple times a year. Too bureaucratic for a company looking to transform. Highly Inefficient.

    Get one plan and stick to it before you change to another.
