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

Pros

Upbeat company culture, fun young group of people, stocked kitchens, kegs, happy hours

Cons

Must be okay with rejection...lots and lots of rejection.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand the square peg, round hole concept a little better.

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

    Pros

    - They do a good job promoting company culture
    - They give you a lot of tools to help make sales
    - Management is very transparent about where you stand
    - Stock options (although they are hard to come by now)

    Cons

    - Company has a lot of growing pains - Management is very inexperienced and unprofessional
    - They discourage you from taking vacation and you can't work from home
    - High pressure position with very little job security
    - Felt like I was working in a Frat house

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more and maybe they will stay longer than a year.

    I have been working at Yelp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is not real life. You get to be yourself, dress casual, work 40 hours and get the opportunity to make a ton of money! There are offsites, random Happy Hour events, theme days, fully stocked kitchens, game rooms etc... We get tons of PTO and they hire so well that you love the people you work with.

    Cons

    If you have done sales before you will think you have died and gone to heaven with the way they train, pay and treat you. If you have never done sales well it IS still sales and you do have to work hard and the highs are high and the lows are low but Yelp makes everything in between awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
