    Definitely not my scene, perfect for people who just want to sell.

    Pros

    Easy to get into! If you seriously want to be hired, just channel your inner Ke$ha and you're good to go. Most of the people are pretty nice, nobody is really "out to get you" as long as you don't end up with duplicate leads. They provide lunch, pay for happy hour (even though I would rather get more money than cheap booze and salty food, but hey, to each his own). The health benefit seemed good enough.

    Cons

    There seems to be no professional development, which leads to poor communication from lower management (mid level management was perfectly fine, possible too good for such a small operation and upper management was not really an issue for me) I am specifically talking about the team leads who clearly never opened a communications book and never learned about organizational behavior.

    To the person who thinks benefits are for 50 year olds: you're in the perfect place. Stay at Yext, you'd never make anywhere else. I think it is also important to point out that $50k is an unreasonably low salary when you're spending over 50 hours per week at work (which isn't even guaranteed, that's only if you consistently make sales and always hit above average numbers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure the high rate of attrition doesn't really affect your bottom line, so who cares?

    Pros

    The CEO is very smart and motivating
    Awesome happy hours
    The team was pretty high quality - even in sales
    Health insurance was very low cost and was probably the best in the benefit package

    Cons

    Starting to hire lower quality employees
    Comp plans change - never know what your going to be making
    Seems that they don't really care about employee career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit pivoting
