    Pros

    -Great Training.
    -Amazing group of managers. I worked for Luke, He does everything he possibly can to set you up for success and does an incredible job of keeping his employees happy and excited to come into work everyday.
    -Unrivaled company culture. You really feel like you are a part of something special.
    -Free breakfast and lunch
    -Cool office in a perfect location
    -Happy hours
    -Great benefits

    Cons

    -You have to deal with all sorts of potential customers. Some may be upset with something you have no control over, such as pricing or payment methods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Have more floor wide meetings. Once is fine to go over monthly goals and review the last month but I'd have meetings weekly of bi-weekly. They are usually pretty quick and a great way to make sure everyone is on the same page.

    I worked at Yext as an intern (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.
