Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

You get to work with a ton of really smart people. The team and engineering processes are quite agile.

Cons

The company is quite young and this can be a double edged sword. They do hire the best out of college but sometimes the new grads lack experience.

    Current Employee - Junior Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ
    Current Employee - Junior Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ

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

    Pros

    The company is amazing. They care about their people, give you tons of perks like great benefits and beer on tap and outings with your teams. They give you tons of support and help to improve your skills. I had a baby like four months into working their and they were very supportive with leave and benefits and even sent me an amazing gift basket.

    Cons

    The position completely underutilizes my education, intelligence, and skills. The job is cold calling and selling online advertising, which is really repetitive and doesn't require too much thought. And the base pay isn't impressive to start with until you get a raise to Account Executive/Senior Account Executive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more than one product (I know you're working on this sort of) to challenge your sales people to sell the best product and consult with the business more.
