    I worked at Yext as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Yext was a great place to intern. It was awesome being part of such an intelligent and motivated team. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more fun and inspiring group of people to work with. Yext definitely has a "Work Hard, Play Hard" environment. I am very optimistic about Yext's future and believe that its products have a lot of growth potential. I would definitely encourage a friend or anyone interested in Yext to apply and see what all the buzz is about.

    Cons

    The compensation was not great. Pretty low for NYC but additional benefits like free Seamless for lunch and dinner help make up for the gap. Definitely a worthwhile experience.

    Pros

    Yext provides a great/fun work culture while balancing it with a challenging environment. Opportunities are available for employees to take control of their career paths and find ways to earn more responsibilities quickly. The company is growing incredibly quickly and is constantly finding ways to improve the way that they do business. Senior Leadership cares tremendously about their employees and wants them to succeed.

    Cons

    With the constant growth of the overall team, the overall organization/structure of the team is constantly in flux and can create challenges in understanding role and how it pertains to greater team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In hiring more middle management personnel, we would be better able to address/manage our continual growth from an organizational stand point.

    I have been working at Yext full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Incredible opportunity to work with some really smart people.
    Completely flat organization within division which means there is no over bearing micro management
    As a seller the technology is top notch and as such the accounts you are consulting respect you highly
    Huge territories and you will not be fighting with other reps for accts. There is more then enough land to grab. Good mix of cold outreach and inbounds.
    Work directly with senior management which gives you a ton of work experience and life experience
    Great perks - free lunches, dinners, amazing offsites. etc.
    Co-workers all respect one another. Really savvy sellers that are not "your typical sales reps"

    Cons

    I'm struggling on this one... it's sales so you know what your getting yourself into.

    Pros

    Innovative technology, genius leadership, environment that fosters learning and growth, true client partnerships and collaboration. Aligned vision and efforts across the company. Strategic execution of goals! No place the weak and weary.

    Cons

    Seamless runner for the office! Important tasks need not be interrupted...seamless delivery of seamless deliveries would certainly help!

    Pros

    Office culture, work-life balance, career growth, opportunity to explore multiple verticals without the immediate need to "pick one"

    Cons

    As is with any small company, formal training isn't fully built out, but is being developed.

    Pros

    Very competitive compensation. Amazing work culture. Mediocrity is checked at the door. Enterprise sales and services team is the best in the business.

    Cons

    No stock options. Can't blame them though. Should've joined the team two years earlier.
    At times it would be beneficial for there to be another layer of management for the enterprise team that would be easily accessible. However, it forces us to be on top of our game and truly run our own business. It's a blessing and a curse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat yourselves to a vacation. You guys are crushing it.

    I have been working at Yext full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I consider myself incredibly lucky to work at a successful start-up that I also truly love coming to every day. I've been at Yext for about 2 years and the amount of growth I've achieved is directly attributed to the management. Yext is a company that values hard-work, innovation, and teamwork. Having a fully stocked snack kitchen isn't bad either!

    Cons

    Yext is constantly innovating so one has to be able to adapt to change quickly.

    I worked at Yext full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Good professional experience
    -Young and energetic culture
    - Great product

    Cons

    You are hired in a large group, and what they don't tell you, is that they plan on letting go more than half the class within 3 weeks-3 months. I was lucky that I didn't leave a job to work at Yext, but a good amount of co-workers who were let go, had left stable positions they were in before.

    150-250 Dials a day-Minimum of 4 hours of talk time. It can be a bit of a grueling 11 hours, as you are required to be there from 8:15AM-7PM. That being said, those who can do it, I have no doubt will be very successful people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire to fire. If you insist on that structure, a little heads up to the applicant on what they are getting into for the first three months, because as stated before, it's a difficult job economy, and many have left stable positions to find themselves unemployed again just a few months in.
