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

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Kitchen. Gym, friendly work environment. I love how everyone is transparent. co workers will celebrate your success. Good location. Decent pay with bonus opportunities.

    Cons

    calls all day everyday. can get repetitive but you get what you sign up for.

  2. Great place to begin a career, or even try out sales to see if it is something you like further down the road.

    Pros

    Office, people, opportunity for growth, good pay if you do your job.

    Cons

    Cold Calling is not always the best and territories can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to even out territories more, or have more switches throughout the year.
