    I have been working at Yelp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I spent almost 2 years at Yelp. It's a rollercoaster. Full of great colleagues, awesome mentors, and a challenging job (but once you get the hang of it you'll pitch-on-the-fly and feel like a boss).

    You are responsible for the full sales cycle. From introduction to close. You will have difficult conversations about selling them Yelp ads with SMB prospects. It's challenging, but what you will also have a team, an organization, readily available for you to learn and execute with.

    I owe everything I know about my profession to this opportunity I got here.

    Thanks Yelp! :)

    Cons

    It's tough.

    This is not meant for someone that isn't ready to live in a role where you will live in failure. The beautiful part of the role is when, you execute... it's extremely gratifying! :)

    Advice to Management

    More paths available to those that want to challenge their skillsets to in a different capacity. The management path is awesome... Some are better individual contributors, like me! :)

    Also compensate better! You're not competitive amongst the other AE roles in the bay area...

    Pros

    Started early enough to benefit from high growth mode and benefit from fresh opportunities. Great culture.

    Somewhat bifurcated company. There's Yelp = Yelp Sales + Yelp Everything Else.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great sales culture. You need to want to be a seller so don't work in a sales role if you're not 100% sure it is what you want. Great training for new grads - electric culture

    Cons

    perople who aren't sellers naturally or want to be a seller most likely not enjoy their time there - nothing is handed to you at Yelp so don't have that expectation going in. This is not a con just reality of workin g in Sales - all must be earned

    Advice to Management

    keep cranking !

    Pros

    Great Culture, great people, great process. Really good training program. Get involved in the tech industry. The people that I have interactive with have been nothing but professional. The benefits and location of the job made my decision to work for yelp easy.

    Cons

    High turnover rate (from what I have heard) I don't know what territory I will assigned. But other then that it's a great opportunity.

    I worked at Yelp (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are motivated you can learn to produce consistently and make better money than your managers.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a bit off for those that are dedicated producers. Management has figured it out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rotating your senior managers as training managers so your employees have a better opportunity to make money out of the gates.
