    I have been working at Yext full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yext harbors a unique, inclusive, and diverse environment. They make a concerted effort to support and promote women, people of color, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community. Yext creates opportunity for advancement to whomever works hard and performs on the highest level. While hard work and dedication seems to be the most prized quality in their employees, a work-life balance is of utmost importance. While I'm a glued-to-their-desk type of person, I am regularly encouraged to take a walk or play a quick game of ping-pong by my colleagues and superiors alike. In addition to the supportive environment created in the office, Yext is constantly throwing happy hours and off-site events to show their appreciation and have a good time! There are weekly and monthly incentives that have sent people home with new TVs, entertainment systems, and gift cards charged with enough money to pay their rent in NYC! I have had the fortunate opportunity to work at some of the nations leading companies, and my experience at Yext is entirely unprecedented.

    Cons

    It would be nice if the financial incentives for referrals in the SMB department were updated.

    Junior Enterprise Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Call with an HR recruiter then was invited to a behavioural interview with a Team Lead analyst. I reached back out to the HR recruiter after not hearing anything simply to inquire about my eligibility for the position. Had to assume they would not continue with my application as I never received any sort of update or response.
