No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

It is fun, sure.
Huge stocked kitchen,
Lots of booze inspired prizes and activities.
A lot of people just. like. you.
It is a challenging job, and if you have the right attitude you can certainly learn a lot from it

Cons

It is trying to bring the fun start-up vibe to Scottsdale, Arizona. This is not San Francisco, and sales people are not engineers or product managers.
Kool-Aid like environment
High turnover
Stress on quota not on if clients really need these services
Telemarketing
Little diversity

Advice to Management

Honestly, what they are doing is working for them. It is simply not for everyone. Some people love it here, some people hate it.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, people, culture, and perks. Fully stocked kitchen, wine and beer every Thursday - Friday, pool, foosball, and numerous happy hours and team outings/bonding on the company dime.

    Cons

    Cold calling 80+ businesses a day is not fun and there is no flexibility regarding products you sell. It's a few packages back when I worked there although I hear it's expanded since then. Very easy to burnout. They expect you to work long hours

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to take lunches and only work an 8 hour day.

    Pros

    Awesome people. Amazing culture. Really good training program. Great company benefits. Stocked fridges. Good looking people. Selling a great product.

    Cons

    Pay is not amazing. If your a top rep you can earn some good money. Beggers cant be choosers but the food could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
