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

Pros

Like all of the other reviewers, the kitchen, environment with music, ping pong tables, kegs on tap in every office. If you drink the company Kool-Aid and exceed the goals and metrics that you're told every month, it's a good place. Social people having an ok time at work. Good sales development structure. If like and can handle high volume calling, cold calling, and stress daily, it'll pay off well.

Cons

Stressful, Poor pay structure. Must exceed all metrics goals. Very repetitive work. Get yelled at by business owners from time to time. The managers aren't all equally great, they're good sales reps who became managers, which isn't always the best case. Claim to be Transparent, but are continually giving you vague and broad feedback about your progress as a sales person. Seems like they must like you or be a part of the office clique to be worked with. Treat their employees like a sales pipeline. 10 in and 10 out.

Advice to Management

Be more specific in meetings. If you're claiming to be Transparent, then do it. Don't give unclear feedback. It's amazing what people are willing to do for you if you show true interest. Be realistic with goals/territories.

    "Decent Entry Level Sales Experience"

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

    Pros

    Fun company, cool start-up culture. Relaxed atmosphere and lots of young people. Can wear jeans to work.

    Cons

    In sales, you will be chained to your desk by your phone, placing a million sales calls to annoyed business owners. Pay was crappy when I started but that was probably because it was entry level position and the economy was going down.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire more sales reps than you have leads for.
