    We don't have an on campus swag store a la Google and Facebook and when swag is given out, it is not usually in a style I would wear.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Yext full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cool perks. Interesting product. Not much else.

    Cons

    Lack of meritocracy: if you work hard and contribute a lot to the company, no one is going to notice it or acknowledge it. All they care about is company culture. You can slack and as long as you smile and wave, you will be a favorite. That's kind of idiotic and they've lost a lot of talented workers due to this. .Absolutely no work-from-home.
