    I have been working at Yelp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    By far the best reason to work at Yelp is the people. Fun, motivated, good looking young individuals buying into a great product. Yelp is growing at a rapid pace and carries a name that now resonates with millions of people all over the country and many other countries (well...every big metro let's say)

    Cons

    See above: fun times with fun people....until they leave Yelp. You will work alongside some great characters at Yelp...for a year or less. The turnover is insane. Reason: The pay and lack of transparency. Yelp pays it's employees much less than what other companies do for a similar or even less demanding role. Transparency: Yelp claims to be very open but the reality is that the upper managers are great salespeople selling their salesforce on ideas but not actual realities. Also-you will feel like you are in high school at times with 2pac blasting while you're on a sales call....whatever floats your boat.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Ask every single employee at yelp and they will say the same thing. Stop hiring and firing 40 people a month and pay the people that have worked to be where they are.


  2. Great place to start your sales career!

    I have been working at Yelp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchens Fun and nurturing environment In-depth sales training Work hard, play hard mentality Upward mobility Ability to work with C-level execs as you move up in the sales org Located in the heart of downtown SF

    Cons

    It can be a grind, if you're not ready to work hard and take feedback it's probably not the place for you Starting pay is low, but that can change quickly based on your performance You are selling to local business owners, and the product set isn't very diverse Emotional sale rather than strategic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen and adapt.
