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

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, music playing, free food, kegs, ping pong table

    Cons

    So many cons...
    -expected to hit daily metrics of 80+ calls, 2+ hours on the phone, 5 appointments, 2 pitches
    -randomly assigned territories, some places that you can assign can have an average income of under 20,000 dollars a year and you are expected to sell them packages starting at 350/month. And you are stuck with that territory for a year
    -training program is not good. Ur only "trained" for the first week and then you are immediately put on the phones. All training consists of is practicing the script
    -extremely competitive environment, constantly reminded of others success and your own failures
    -have to sell advertisement to people that work in rundown pharmacies and dive bars in small towns aka people that don't have the money to advertise and don't need it
    -forced positivity
    -lots of gossip
    -constant pressure to succeed
    -have to be consistently yelled at and hung up on and then be able to pick the phone back up and call again
    -no down time
    -low pay
    -higher up claims that managers are there to help give you advice, but no one really has any advice to give

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training
