I have been working at Yelp full-time for more than a year

Pros

Its possible to make $70K+ right out of college if you pick up the job quickly (uncommon but doable). Most reps will make around $40K their first year, but top reps will easily clear six figures. Great overall benefits, free food, drinks, beer, and lots of offsite events. The company is growing very fast and going in the right direction. Stock options grant if your lucky enough to get some (I hear they have decreased the grant substantially since I started). Overall a fun, easy job if you can thrive in a sales environment, if not you will likely be stressed out!

Cons

Not a very professional environment. Tenure is more important to upper management than talent. If you get stuck with a bad territory you're chances of being a top producer are almost zero. High turnover rate. No 401K matching from the employer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people based on talent and ability to get the job done best, not tenure or who drinks the kool aid the most. Plenty of superior candidates get passed up every hiring round for inferior (but more "Yelpy" and/or tenured) candidates. Adjust quotas based on territories.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance. The management encourages employees to work hard and play hard. Everyone is passionate about seeing each other succeed and for the product they sell and support.

    Cons

    Being that it's still a relatively young company, "growing pains" are to be expected as more efficient work practices continue to evolve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Excited to be working with you all.

    Pros

    great culture, incredible training program, awesome to be working at a company when it's booming and really starting to take off

    Cons

    cold calling, high stress, if you don't have an incredibly positive outlook and/or believe in the power of Yelp you will not like this job at all
