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

Pros

Great benefits, fun atmosphere, good teamwork.

Cons

Noisy workplace, young personalities at play, slightly lower pay than what I prefer, no relocation included

Advice to Management

I really enjoy the Operations Managers. I think they are professional and friendly. It would be nice to know better ways for us to achieve promotions.

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

    Pros

    1. Great product with an amazing future.
    2. Some of the smartest people you will ever meet work at Yelp.
    3. They do offer 30 days to opt our of their "Dispute Resolution Policy" upon starting. I encourage everyone to do so.

    Cons

    1. The way HR and management interacts with employees brings the term "Digital Plantation" to mind.
    2. The company seems to have the HR and management processes of a 10 person start up although they are now a large publicly traded company.
    3. This company just doesn't care about employees and does nothing to create a culture of empowerment.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get to work on your HR and management processes.
    2. Care about your employees.


  2. "Fun people to work with. Felt very exploitative calling clueless business owners and pressuring them to buy advertising."

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

    Pros

    Colleagues, free beverages, plan lots of fun extracurricular activities.

    Cons

    Stress, management is inexperienced. Like working at a fraternity party; sex,drugs and rock n roll.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees time to develop before putting them on performance plans. Some people can sell in the smaller less tech savvy markets, while others can't. Try to judge on a curve. However yelp has so many people lining up to work for them all the employees are completely expendable. So they can afford to fire at will and the smallest sign of not hitting your quota
