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

Pros

Free food good insurance casual workplace attire

Cons

- At the mercy of a terrible territory system - no 401k matching - no opportunity for career growth unless you're part of the "it" social group - extremely unprofessional workplace atmosphere - treated as a number and nothing else - you will work for a manager that is less qualified than you

Advice to Management

Don't pretend you are concerned about employee retention. You talk the talk, but you need to walk the walk. Level the playing field -- the rich get richer (some through dishonesty in selling) and the poor get fired. Get a better handle on your territory system -- Metrics don't mean everything in determining good turf - get input from the people who are actually on the front lines, not someone looking at a spreadsheet. Don't promote managers based off of a few good selling months and then overlook your true leaders. You have management that not only can't do their jobs, but don't know how to do the job of their subordinates

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

    Pros

    high energy environment stocked kitchen good team building activities offsite

    Cons

    advertising is a tough gig salaries are low the top producers are evasive on the phone or downright dishonest and management doesn't do anything, they just reward the high sales numbers

    Advice to Management

    Yelp is a great place to be. Just try to expand your knowledge base beyond Yelp world. Use critical thinking, ask questions. Don't take everything at face value. Teach your employees to understand why and how the product works, not just how to be aggressive and urgent.
