    Pros

    I have never had sales experience before working at Yext. The extensive training program was great and taught me everything I need to know about Yext. Once graduating from the program, I continue to get support and assistance from management every day. My manager has been here for a while and is the best manager I have ever had, at any job! She is always looking out for me and helping me reach my goals. The company in general is great! They give you full medical, free lunch, snacks, and again support from the whole company. Everyone is really nice, welcoming and fun, and I have felt at home here since day 1.

    Cons

    I gained a few pounds from eating all the M&Ms!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Yext is a pioneer in it's field, and it's exciting to be a part of a company that's really taking off. There's a fun work environment but you're also expected to work hard. Yext definitely keeps its employees happy (offering happy hours, dinners and such), and the people here are great!

    Cons

    Doesn't match 401k but hopefully that'll change in the future. The company is expanding quickly so benefits are hopefully going to follow suit.

    Advice to Management

    The managers both on for the teams and for the training classes (I can speak to the SMB Sales floor) really do want to see each YSA succeed. With weekly one on ones it's easy to stay on top of one's progress - keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Fun work environment. A great start-up atmosphere with a lot of younger people who enjoy the office. It can be hard work, but it's nice that your paycheck reflects how much work you put in

    Cons

    They don't match your 401k

    Pros

    Yext is growing at a fast rate. They are hiring tons of new talent, which speaks to the future of the company. They treat their employees with respect and give them the freedom to work under their own conditions.

    Cons

    There are only so many career opportunities. Hopefully as the company grows, there will be new types of positions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Friday meetings with the CEO for some Q&A and pizza with beer. Great snacks and SOME good people.

    Cons

    A manager who abused his power and also thought it was ok to throw negative comments freely. There were also similar comments made from other people who interacted with this individual. It was really really bad so please be careful with encountering this person who is still employed at yext but you just might notice who he is the minute he approaches you with his unprofessional approaches.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources, please pay close attention to those with managerial roles who abuse their power and please take further action to discipline those who can jeopardize the reputation of the company. I was mistreated in ways that I have never been treated at earlier jobs prior to yext.

    Pros

    Great product, young environment, awesome perks!

    Cons

    It wasn't until the first day that I learned there was a training period where you would essentially have to make forty sales in a month in order to keep your job. That should have been made explicitly clear in the interview process.

    Pros

    Despite rapid growth, Yext has maintained extremely high standards in hiring and the company still feels very much like a startup

    Cons

    Processes are naturally becoming slightly more bureaucratic with steady hiring
