Yelp

At Yelp we have “quarterlies” where we align with our manager on our growth over the quarter and if there is a “misalignment” in where we think I am then we chat about it to try and come to a mutual understanding. In my last two quarterlies I’ve felt like we’ve misaligned in multiple areas and I spent a ton of time explaining things that my manager didn’t know I did. So my question is… have you experienced something similar and what did you do to fix it. How can I gain visibility?

    Pros

    The only benefit was the free food and coffee but after a while it gets boring. I would rather have a higher salary than free food/coffee anyday.

    Cons

    It is very tiring and mentally draining. Everything else sucked. Got yelled at for taking more than 3 bathroom breaks.

    Great sales education

    Pros

    Plenty of energy that makes you become motivated if you are not already. Free food and snacks which is important if you are on a fixed income at the beginning. Growth within the company and accessibility to move to other locations if positions are available from New York to San Francisco. Sales tools and technique that invaluable to ones future in a sales role or in any other job, it allows oneself to grow into the position, learn how to become assertive without sounding rude or pushy.

    Cons

    Micro-management, to many group rounded ups to reinforce what needs to be done for the day and what are the numbers that need to be achieved (say it once or maybe twice a week) everyday is excessive. Noise level can be extremely bothersome that can throw you off your game or make it difficult to hear what is being said. Lack of direction of what to do in case there is an emergency (extremely poor communication) from management. The pressures of 80 dials 2hrs of talk time can be overwhelming but it can be done. Biggest issue I have is the amount of times I/we have moved deak and pod areas it serves no purpose and does not allow for one to adjust to he/she area of operation (you cannot have a since belonging, you nomad always moving).

    Pros

    free food and most of the employees were great

    Cons

    terrible management, lied about what the job actually would be like (cold calling business owners who hate yelp). Basically just get hung up on everyday and call about 80 + businesses who don't want to hear from yelp
