    I worked at Yapstone full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people within the company, but pushed out by politics and toxic work environment.

    Cons

    Where to start....this company is horrible! Yapstone treats its employees with so much disrespect. It's such a sad work environment especially since Yapstone used to be filled with truly great, hardworking, genuine employees. The people that are left are overworked and stressed. The never give out raises or promotions unless you are in the 'inner circle'. The executive team keeps everything quiet and are very shady with both employees and customers. They straight-out lie to customers just to get more money from them. They love to use the word 'transparency' in everything and its an absolute joke. I have never worked for a company where I was so blindsided and forced to do things I did not agree with. The company is run by politics and friends of the former CEO. It's a toxic work environment. I understand layoffs at a company happen, but Yapstone does not handle them well. They lay off people in the worst way possible and don't care about anyone's feelings. Once you are laid off, they have you train people your job in 2 weeks that are in a completely different role/field. It's insulting. I cannot express how much this company will suck the energy and happiness out of you. Stay away.

    "Significant Changes Made-Better Outlook"

    I have been working at Yapstone full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company has gone through a tremendous amount of changes over the last 3-4 months, all for the better. The leadership changes have been dynamic and the current EC team is the best we've had in a very long time, if ever. The level of transparency , open dialogue, plus the care and thoughtfulness for employees is so unbelievably different from years past. We have gone through extraordinary difficulties, but there is a BIG glimmer of hope peaking through. I am optimistic about where Yapstone is and where it is going.

    Cons

    The amount of work to employee ratio is a bit overwhelming. There is a feeling of pressure wearing many hats, HOWEVER EC and HR are aware and doing their best to work employees on time management, encouraging time off ,etc.....positive spin -this does give a sense of inclusion and accomplishment.
