Former Employee - Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ
Former Employee - Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ

I worked at Yelp full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, people, culture, and perks. Fully stocked kitchen, wine and beer every Thursday - Friday, pool, foosball, and numerous happy hours and team outings/bonding on the company dime.

Cons

Cold calling 80+ businesses a day is not fun and there is no flexibility regarding products you sell. It's a few packages back when I worked there although I hear it's expanded since then. Very easy to burnout. They expect you to work long hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage people to take lunches and only work an 8 hour day.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free food. I guess it's the least they can do for the minimum wage salaries.

    Cons

    From the very first day I started I kept my resume posted online and actively networked with recruiters for any opportunities that came alone. Every single one of them told me to remove every reference to Yelp from my resume. Every recruiter had been told by the HR teams they worked with to never forward any resume from anyone who had ever worked for Yelp because of their lack or real business experience, lack of professionalism, and lack of legitimate skills.

    Yelp only hires people with very limited or no experience so they have nothing to compare it to. The company has an extremely bad reputation with businesses both big and small. You will not make your goals. It's a mill that just uses people for sub par wages. It eats them up and spits them out. Ask yourself why they have such massive and perpetual turnover and that says it all. It's just a bad company. The people that think it's great are clueless hipsters who are so blindly ignorant that they cannot see for themselves they are working for a failed company. The incompetent are promoted. if you're over 25, your manager will be younger than you. Extremely unprofessional work environment and absolutely ridiculous management.

    Do not bother.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to a real business school and learn some skills.
