    Pros

    Today is my 4 year anniversary working at yell and in that time I have progressed from a sales consultant to a line manager. I can honestly say its the best place I have ever worked in terms of the atmosphere, the people, the environment and most importantly the job of selling our fantastic products to SME'S which in turn helps grow their business. There is no better feeling and certainly no better sales job. I would recommend to anyone

    Cons

    I honestly cant think of any

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Yell full-time

    Pros

    Casual dress code, high salary, great social events

    Cons

    A high level of bullying which gets covered up by management to protect their own. I've found out since leaving, from previous employees and some still there, that this has been going on for many years but management like to make out that everything is wonderful and nothing bad ever happens, so it all gets covered up.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you do, and act on the bullying and stop sweeping it under the carpet

    Not really sure I can be giving the management advice.
