    Pros

    Super fun, get to know people at the office. Very young, vibrant company culture.

    Cons

    The only con I could think of is if you don't like a steady schedule I wouldn't recommend this. Schedule varies depending on events that happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! I loved having independent projects.

    Pros

    Great culture, managers, supports local businesses, great work life balance, benefits are unreal, if you're doing well the sky is the limit

    Cons

    can be pretty frustrating if you're not getting to you number, if you start doing poorly it's tough to change things, the worse you do the less willing people are to help you out.

    I worked at Yelp as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Yelp is a great place to work! This is my first internship and all my coworkers have been very supportive. I've learned a ton. The pay is great, they really push for work life balance (i.e. they actually want you to go home/go have fun after you've put in your 8 hours), and they plan lots of fun stuff for employees/interns.

    Cons

    The free snacks are meh (so basically there is very little I don't like about working here!)

    Pros

    Yelp treats their employees very well. Overall, there are a lot of opportunities and the company is growing as such as quick pace.

    Cons

    The ramp up period can be tough. The first 3 months are going to be a bit tough for your average sales person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is fine the way it is right now.
