Flexible work from home policy. Free drinks and snacks at Corp offices. Top performers are paid well.
Don't be fooled by Yext messaging. Executive leadership are skilled at constructing a positive appearance for the street. Although, once behind the curtain, you will find most team leaders (AVP and up) to be tone deaf, jaded and apathetic toward the employees, unless it is in their short term best interest. They say the right things, but have little respect for the opinions or welfare of the workers. The senior management practices favoritism on steroids. Their is an small, active group of longer term employees who are members of the "secret handshake group". They quietly support each other and are the beneficiaries of a biased culture of private messaging via Confide or open favoritism during company calls, events and benefits. This is a company that is working to boost their value through employee RIF's (3 so far in 2022) and employee compensation changes/downgrades (coming soon).

I have never worked in an environment with such welcoming and thoughtful individuals. I have felt incredibly supported during my time here and have even been encouraged to pursue projects that interest me, even if it is not directly related to my role. The work-life balance here is perfect, but I actually find myself wanting to hang out with my coworkers! I would recommend Yext to anyone.
No true cons! The management team is very transparent with all of the employees. Though the company is changing a lot, I never feel in the dark.
