    Pros

    Yelp puts you in a position that allows you to achieve your career goals. I liken it to a vehicle that I get to drive anywhere that I want to go and the better that I get at driving this vehicle the further that I am able to go. You are given everything you need to become a top performer.

    Cons

    If change is something that you are not used to, then this may not be the place for you. Change is inevitable because we are growing so fast.

    Advice to Management

    Pour into your new managers as much training as possible.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The dynamic and culture of this company is outstanding for employees. A fun, fast paced environment with young, hard working people. Lots of off-site events, the offices are brand new and all are up to date with kitchens, ping pong etc.
    If you are a new person in sales, this is an outstanding company to get some stripes on your shoulder and learn the basics of selling, hustle and closing deals.
    The health benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Cold calling on small and medium sized businesses is tough, and the compensation isn't that great. Don't expect to make a ton of money here unless you are the top 5% in sales.
    The claim is that there are tons of career opportunities, however 99% won't get above a mid level manager. If you continue on in sales, you could become a National Rep, but the transition is hard for most reps who don't have any agency experience and tend to fade out. Usually after about 2 years you'll have gotten your experience and can move on to another company for bigger $.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the people!
