Sales @ Yelp.

SAE (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsGrowth, the company is growing as faster or faster than anyone in a region full opportunity. Fantastic colleagues and leadership on a personal and professional level. Huge upside to climb the food chain if you work hard and perform.

ConsKnow what you're getting into, entry level inside sales is cold calling. People either love or hate Yelp. Small business owners aren't always the most savvy advertising minds, they hate the review someone left them, in turn probably don't like you off the bat. You need to have patients, thick skin and be coachable.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to restructure the comp plan as the company grows.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
