I have been working at Yelp full-time

Pros

great culture, incredible training program, awesome to be working at a company when it's booming and really starting to take off

Cons

cold calling, high stress, if you don't have an incredibly positive outlook and/or believe in the power of Yelp you will not like this job at all

    "Revolving Door- Rapid Turnover and Relentless Sales Tactics"

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ
    Former Employee - Account Executive in Scottsdale, AZ

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

    Pros

    Awesome perks- apple computers, brand new everything, bright office, free food, drinks, pandora music playing, cheerful, innovative, fast-paced, best technology, very forward thinking company. Smart people to work with- everyone is young, smart and talented. Learned a lot about an Internet company.

    Cons

    Wasn't given a chance and then I was abruptly let go without being able to prove myself. Was given a crappy sales territory, had very high expectations for the territory that I don't think anyone could meet, boss wanted me to do unethical things in order to get sales, soo much pressure. I was working 12 hour days doing sales on the phones, and I was still let go. Kind of hate this company.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down- just because you're working fast, doesn't mean it's effective. It's very costly to hire people and have fast turnover. Cool your egos- too many egos running rampant in the company.
