Be cautious about this place, do NOT take as a first job out of school

Account Executive (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros- Great culture
- Company is growing
- Perks
- Training
- Designed program of progression

Cons- Extremely high volume of cold calling (80-100+)
- Work is terribly repetitive
- No technical skills are developed in this job
- Once you are in sales, you pretty much stay here
- Lack of job security (they are hiring so many people, because so many others are being fired)
- Extremely low salary (in NYC you can barely make it by with this salary), which is why I said do NOT take this as a first job out of college
- Culture can be too hype sometimes
- Your success here really depends on your starting territory. This is a luck based job, not skill really. It depends on who you are talking to and when. A great rep can get a horrible territory while a less talented rep gets a better one. Who wins in that situation?

Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to keep the company growing and to retain talent, you guys need to do something about job security. Firing people because they did not spend two hours on the phone or make 80 calls is ridiculous.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    I worked at Yelp full-time for more than a year


    Pros: It is a young and fun company with tons of cool people and amenities.
