Pros

-Headquarter office is excellent and is right in the middle of beautiful San Francisco.
-Training is awesome, they really get you going from day 1. They throw tons of information at you but they make it easy to understand and learn.
-Maintain a great "startup" company culture.
-The other reps become your friends and the reason why the company culture is so great is because they have maintained the ability to hire great human beings.

Cons

New sales team managers lack experience in the role and reflects on the performances of the team members at times.

Calling system should be vertical based not territory based.

Territory distribution is not fair and allows some people to achieve success substantially easier than others.

The Job becomes a grind when the "new job shine" wears off and you are stuck making 70+ calls a day to many people who hate Yelp because it ruined their business in some way.

Advice to Management

Make sure the people that are hired as managers actually want to be managers and can sustain a leadership role.

Make sure sales reps have the ability to create and implement their own style while practicing the founding principles of cold call sales and Yelp.

    Really fun if you're good at sales and are confident in the product.

    Pros

    Yes, cold calling is repetitive, but you also have the freedom to choose who you want to call for whatever reasons you choose to call them, which means every conversation can be different from the last. You learn a lot about the different types of businesses that you end up calling. Ultimately, you're giving small businesses who do a good job a huge competitive edge. The office culture is very team oriented rather than competitive, which is great and very motivating.

    Cons

    I mean, you don't close every deal, and not succeeding in that sense can feel very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
