Great company for young sales reps

Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Yelp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe dynamic and culture of this company is outstanding for employees. A fun, fast paced environment with young, hard working people. Lots of off-site events, the offices are brand new and all are up to date with kitchens, ping pong etc.
If you are a new person in sales, this is an outstanding company to get some stripes on your shoulder and learn the basics of selling, hustle and closing deals.
The health benefits are outstanding.

ConsCold calling on small and medium sized businesses is tough, and the compensation isn't that great. Don't expect to make a ton of money here unless you are the top 5% in sales.
The claim is that there are tons of career opportunities, however 99% won't get above a mid level manager. If you continue on in sales, you could become a National Rep, but the transition is hard for most reps who don't have any agency experience and tend to fade out. Usually after about 2 years you'll have gotten your experience and can move on to another company for bigger $.
