    I have been working at Yext full-time

    Pros

    -Company is rapidly growing.
    -Lots of talented developers who are a pleasure to work with and learn from.
    -Leadership places a strong emphasis on good software engineering practices, which makes things easier for other developers and reduces the occurrence of bugs. This is in marked contrast to many other companies where you are encouraged to crank out as much code as possible without any attention to quality.
    -You can get free lunch delivered to your office every day.

    Cons

    Easy to gain weight from the free soda and snacks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Setup: 3 different interviews, one case study, 2.5 hours total.

    Everyone was very relaxed and just wanted to get a feel if you could critically think through the questions. Most important factor, I found, was whether or not they could enjoy working with you. I found it was a lot of "fit" questions. The case study was to test my problem solving and arithmetic skills.
