Definitely not my scene, perfect for people who just want to sell.Sep 8, 2012 - YSA in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Easy to get into! If you seriously want to be hired, just channel your inner Ke$ha and you're good to go. Most of the people are pretty nice, nobody is really "out to get you" as long as you don't end up with duplicate leads. They provide lunch, pay for happy hour (even though I would rather get more money than cheap booze and salty food, but hey, to each his own). The health benefit seemed good enough.
There seems to be no professional development, which leads to poor communication from lower management (mid level management was perfectly fine, possible too good for such a small operation and upper management was not really an issue for me) I am specifically talking about the team leads who clearly never opened a communications book and never learned about organizational behavior. To the person who thinks benefits are for 50 year olds: you're in the perfect place. Stay at Yext, you'd never make anywhere else.

-Solid offices across the globe. -Flexibility to work remotely.
-Lots of turnover of great people with zero communication about it which hits morale hard. - Seems to be a lot of career stagnation and lack of manager investment in helping everyone on their teams - A general lack of friendliness and a "we're on the same team". Plenty of instances of people projecting their stress and anxieties on others in not-so-nice ways. Lack of empathy in many parts of the culture that I've experienced - No one seems to have a good work life balance and there is a lot of poor systems that create more work overall that could be avoided with better internal communication and alignment - The culture generally just feels down when you are in smaller groups where people can be honest, and falsely positive elsewhere.Continue reading
