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.

    Pros

    It's great to come in and work with people that have positive attitudes and care about each other. They have some amazing perks like the stocked kitchens, game rooms, ping pong, pool, and yes the craft beer. SF even has a full time barista and Phx has a nap room and golf simulator. They are growing quickly.

    Cons

    The professional growth is great but exists mostly for sales. Have friends in just about every department and sales gets all the love.
