Great place to grow your career, great business, work hard play hard

Sales (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Yelp full-time for more than 3 years

Pros+ Culture: upbeat, smart, quirky, fun and hard working
+ People: very intelligent fun people, challenging, interesting and great workforce in general
+ High bar for performance: very fulfilling when you perform, but tough when you don't
+ Transparency: the company actually shares a lot about what's happening, and if you take it upon yourself build good relationships with your manager you'll learn a ton
+ Great business: Yelp continues to grow on all fronts, exciting to be a part of
+ Awesome career opportunities if you're top notch at your job. Lots of growth potential.
+ I have a lot of respect for the senior level management - Geoff, Jeremy especially

Cons+ You have to work your tail off to do well, not a place you can glide by or phone it in. Not for the lazy
+ Depending on where you work, can feel a bit rah rah fratty sometimes
+ Rumor mill: a lot of people get into the frenzy of rumors about everything. Ignore it if you want to be successful.
+ Yes you will see Account Executives come and go, but not everyone can do sales, its not a job for the feint of heart, and when you hire as many sales people as Yelp does you're going to see a few duds. My advise: if you want sales just focus on your goals and leverage your resources and you'll do well.

Advice to Senior Management+ Continue to provide they type of transparency you do today
+ Treat all your employees like young professionals in all offices and departments

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
