    Current Employee - User Operations in San Francisco, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Yelp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -pretty comprehensive employee benefits -several planned events for employee morale (pre-covid) -young employees (could also be a con, but I like the work culture) -free snacks & coffee bar -no overtime all in all, for an SF job, yelp falls short compared to other tech companies. However, if you take the job at face value, the benefits, work culture, and snacks are pretty good. I would even go so far as to say that the benefits are actually on par with other tech companies - they offer less PTO, but have a really good medical benefit system that include mental health and wellness benefits. I enjoy the work culture and feel like I'm learning a lot from my experience. It's dependent on what department of User Ops you get into, but I don't regret accepting my job at Yelp.

    Cons

    -pay!! I understand that Yelp has several cities to work across and they standardize the wages, but the SF wages are barely competitive -back to the young people: as with any tech company, management can be a little unorganized. yelp is interesting though because there ARE higher level people who have been at yelp for 5+ years now, but on the lower level you do get the younger, less experienced managers. -if you can't focus on your own grass, you will get annoyed seeing the greener grass from other tech companies lol. I don't even care about free meals, but I wish the pay was more up to par -I will keep my overall rating as a 4 for now...but I would really give it a 3.5 if I were to include the response to COVID... employees were kept in the dark about layoffs and furloughs until the day it happened
