    I worked at Yelp as an intern

    Pros

    - Pay is good
    - Excellent intern program with lots of events
    - Mentor was very eager to teach me about technical concepts (will vary depending on your mentor)
    - It was my first time working in web, but there was plenty of support in the form of documentation and help from co-workers to get me up to speed
    - No unreasonable expectations, I was never expected to stay late even when I was given a project with a deadline

    Cons

    Pretty overbearing "tech culture," you gotta always be smiling and agreeing with everyone. Probably not an issue for most people.

    I worked at Yelp as an intern

    Pros

    Free food fun people great coffee

    Cons

    its cold calling no matter how high you get up. To much of the salary is at risk to live comfortably in NYC.

    Advice to Management

    create other jobs besides cold calling

    I worked at Yelp as an intern

    Pros

    Loved the team of other interns I worked with, I also loved getting paid as an intern. I also loved the type of work I did and the events I got to attend.

    Cons

    I didn't learn nearly as much as I was expecting, and I was put on the hook for a lot of things that were not my fault. My boss was very hands on in the beginning and then expected us to do everything afterwards, which seemed extremely unprofessional. I never met any other Yelp employees and was never given any special projects to do to grow my skills. They also were extremely fishy about my hours, and not paying me for certain things that I did.... #illegal

    Advice to Management

    Intern program would be better if taught more and not just there to do 1 job repeatedly.

    Engineers are clever and experienced.
    Managers are understanding and not pushy.
    Relaxed and laid back work environment.
    Free beer on tap, and good variety of snacks.
    Work life balance.

    Unmotivated engineers and managers. Lack of notice on product details, nothing new to work on except on data mining team. Very conservative approach to product and too many unmantained features inside app.
