Sales
Depending on the department, traveling to areas we serve was a plus. Meeting new people and business owners and being able to show them the value of advertising

Ypg
Back then the company was already entering a difficult phase due to the difficult conversion to the digital world.
Those were trouble times when department was being restructured every second quarter

Did not enjoy working here
Yellow Pages has a "used car salesman" attitude, meaning that their sales team are directed to do and say anything to get the biggest contract possible.
My job was to convince people to not cancel their contract when they realized that not everything promised would happen. This mean a lot of arguing with customers over contracts.

In 2018, the company realized that they were losing a lot of money. Two thirds of the company got laid off, the commissions were cut and sales objectives were placed much higher. Any advantage offered by the company was also removed
Pros
Fun xmas parties
Cons
Stressful, no social advantage, hard sales objectives and low commission

Wonderful Culture
Although my time was short it was amicable. The Culture is quite supportive. The Teams work harmoniously and bickering is virtually non-existent. I also noticed that Diversity and Inclusivity was highly important there.

The digital transformation was unsuccessful
YP had an admirable goal of achieving digital transformation but unfortunately it never panned out. They are stuck in the dark ages, relative to agile businesses that are commonplace nowadays. Good training but poor overall experience. I would not recommend this to a friend.

Don’t waste your time
Stay away. Ineffective upper management, shady sales tactics, and relentless layoffs. Dying business with little prospects for a long term career. Soul sucking organization with little loyalty to valuable employees.

Great co-workers
I loved my co-workers. The managers however were like a bunch of mean girls and unfortunately very unprofessional. Loved the job, the environment and my co-workers just not management.

corporation gone wrong
YPG is a conglomerate of multiple companies spread all over Canada which have never managed to coalesce into a single effective entity.
It is silo-ed, over administrative, corporative, inefficient... a rigidity in a fast pace digital world that has taken it to its knees

Yellow Pages ruined the Vancouver Magazine Culture
When Vancouver Magazine was acquired by Yellow Pages the team morale was at an all-time low. Many changes came from higher up with little understanding of the products we sold.

Do not get on this sinking ship
This company has been avoiding bankruptcy for a decade. They were too late into the online advertising and when they joined, they had bad products. The sales reps have been trained to lie and scam businesses into buying online advertising that does nothing.

Failing company
Company is desperate to maintain market share after the collapse of print. Company management scapegoat employees and use underhanded tricks to hide revenue loss.

Great people but poor upper management
If the management haven't pushed everyone to leave, you will find great people there, as the direct team in Burnaby is full of awesome people. However upper management are too detach from reality to invest into the team and make it a great place to work. They only care about making money and budget cut.
