I have been working at Yelp full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

great culture
managers care
benefits
training is great

Cons

cold calling. all. day. long. 80 calls expected, 2 hour minimum talk time.
never any change in your day. if youre not pitching youre calling businesses leaving voicemails and getting hung up on all day long.
They are not upfront about the commission structure. you pretty much have to make your salary for the company in order to start making commission
work-life balance is rough. 830-530, often expected to stay later.
micro-managed, managers are looking at your metrics all day long.
they say 5 promotions in 2 years, some promotions doesnt involved a pay increase, just a title change

Advice to Management

no need to come in at 830 when most businesses aren't even open yet.

    Pros

    Training, commission, opportunity for growth, perks, benefits, management

    Cons

    Cold Calling.... If you can't handle calling businesses and asking for $ than this job isn't for you.

    If you are looking for a job in sales and ready to kickstart your career with a great company than this is for you.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing.
