    Pros

    Sales to local businesses is very challenging, however it's really rewarding. Yelp's advertising product is great and knowing that you can help a small business owner compete in their market and connect with their local community is totally worth it. I also loved the hands on approach to training and development. I've worked at other jobs where they give you packets and videos and expect you to learn from those materials. At Yelp they trained and helped me through 10's of different avenues.

    Cons

    I wish there was a less expensive package to sell businesses. Sometimes $$ can be tight and you want to help them somehow. Guess that's what the free products are for.

    Advice to Management

    I loved it at Yelp. Especially being on pilot teams and testing new approaches to sales. Keep that up. (I had to leave for personal reasons that took me to Dallas for a few years. Hoping to get back in at some point).

    Pros

    Great company and awesome place to work. Excellent leadership with a clear vision and unwillingness to compromise that vision or sell out.

    Cons

    Some folks may not like the open office collaborative setting. While it could get distracting at times, the culture it created was well worth the occasional noise.

    Advice to Management

    Do not change a thing! You have a great company and all you need to do now is maintain it.

    Pros

    great work place. You can have honest talks with management and directors in a no fear setting. Think you suck? Ask them. Want to improve ask them. As long as your team driven and metrics driven your always have a home. I know people who haven't made quota in 2 years but are up beat enough they keep them.

    Cons

    Offsets are during work hours , the net vs gross sales for salarie raises suck. The charge back pay back period of every 3 months instead of 6 is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Start the sales rep in Scottsdale at 40 instead of 30. Everyone else in the valley is hiring them at 48+
