I'm glad I started here but even happier that I got out

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

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

ProsYou work with some great people, I moved for this job and pretty much all of my friends are here. Free food and fun work environment. Casual dress is a huge plus. Flexibility in schedule and you don't feel like your micro-managed.

ConsYou also work with a lot of people who think they're still in HS or college. There are a ton of cliques. Don't get brainwashed and drink out of the Yelp kool-aid. I worked 60 hour work weeks without being compensated for it. They discourage working over-time but will look the other way because they know you have to. Work here for a year and get out. Everyone I know that quit or got fired was able to find a better job right away.

Advice to Senior ManagementTerritories matter and you know it. Award great reps but don't treat the ones who have been there for a while but are average like they don't matter. There is a high turn-over rate, it's natural to the industry, so respect the ones that are loyal and help them succeed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
