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

    Pros

    By far the best reason to work at Yelp is the people. Fun, motivated, good looking young individuals buying into a great product. Yelp is growing at a rapid pace and carries a name that now resonates with millions of people all over the country and many other countries (well...every big metro let's say)

    Cons

    See above: fun times with fun people....until they leave Yelp. You will work alongside some great characters at Yelp...for a year or less. The turnover is insane. Reason: The pay and lack of transparency. Yelp pays it's employees much less than what other companies do for a similar or even less demanding role. Transparency: Yelp claims to be very open but the reality is that the upper managers are great salespeople selling their salesforce on ideas but not actual realities. Also-you will feel like you are in high school at times with 2pac blasting while you're on a sales call....whatever floats your boat.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Ask every single employee at yelp and they will say the same thing. Stop hiring and firing 40 people a month and pay the people that have worked to be where they are.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food and drinks, beer taps in the office, and a young group of party fanatics. Plenty of opportunity to win free prizes...if you are really aggressive and get a good territory....

    Cons

    Very stressful working conditions, only cold calling sales, get yelled at from potential or past clients - ostracized if you do not perform as management expects. High quotas and very difficult to attain with the "proprietary" product the company has.
