    I worked at Yelp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with great people and the culture is great! A lot of parties, drinking, games and fun! It's a great resume booster, learns the ins and outs of inside sales, learn how to be bad ass on the phone!

    Cons

    Very stressful environment! The turnover is really high and the pay sucks! The managers put so much stress on their team that it takes away the fun from the position. You're always worried if you're going to get canned.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Cold 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 $.
