Employee Review

    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Irresponsible leadership

    Pros

    Flexible work from home policy. Free drinks and snacks at Corp offices. Top performers are paid well.

    Cons

    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). The new CEO (former Chairman) openly admitted that the stock price is all that matters to him. He has boasted about not receiving a base pay and all of his compensation will come from an increase is the stock price. As an employee, run before you are the next beneficiary of his draconian cuts to make the bottom line appear positive in an effort to drive up the stock price so he receives his payday.

    Amazing Place to Work!

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
