        I have been working at Yext full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        interesting market, cool product vision, great location, decent perks, some great leadership, good sales support.

        Cons

        though sell, company keeps on changing messaging, lots of outbound prospecting, management not engaged, rapidly changing culture (and not positively)

        Advice to Management

        Yext used to hire smart, high energy, driven and intelligent people..we moved away from that and now hire low energy folks who try and repeat the same old trick.
