    I have been working at Localsearch full-time

    Pros

    The head office is close to shopping centre. My colleagues are a great bunch of people.

    Cons

    The organisation is management heavy and management processes and communication are shockingly poor. Employees are treated as disposable and there is very little loyalty for a job well done as is evidenced by recent and fairly regular retrenchments

    Advice to Management

    Consult your employees, they have knowledge and skills in the areas you employed them. Stop micro-managing. Treat your employees with more respect and you will have a happy and more productive workplace!

    I have been working at Localsearch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked with this company for 24 years & this has to stand for something positive from an employee! I love my job, because I sell products that are “user-friendly” & products that are ever progressing with the current market needs.. Our clients, are treated with respect & importance to their individual business needs, & they renew with us over & over again. I have clients that I have been selling to for over 20 yrs. We always aim to provide personal service to our clients, & they know they are dealing with a Local Australian Company, which is getting so much rarer these days.
    Our Reps can always count on company backing, & our training is ongoing these days, which has been another progressive movement from our company leaders.
    The users of our products - the Searchers, are also listened to, so we can always provide that user friendly offline or online information 24/7, in a format they love using.
    Even Google has taken notice of our credibility, & we are now Premium Google Partners, which will offer so many more opportunities for our Company & our Clients Businesses.

    Cons

    Localsearch has had to upgrade from an Offline Company to a Digital Company. This has been a challenge to all the company, & especially to the Reps who sell the products. We have needed a sure confidence in our new products, to ensure our current & new clients are getting that same level of exposure to their businesses that they’ve always trusted Localsearch to provide.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You are a unique bunch of highly talented people, each playing a role in the success of this extraordinary company.

    I have been working at Localsearch (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company for over 11 years, I have a healthy balance between my family life and my career. I wouldn’t want to work any where else, Local Search provides me with freedom as well as the opportunity to travel whilst doing something I love.

    Cons

    The only con would be adjusting from print media to digital, although the training we have been provided with has been very informative and helpful which eased this transition.
