      Pros

      The people are nice and caring, the energy is casual and productive, and everyone you interact with makes it clear they enjoy having you around.

      Cons

      I honestly can't think of any.

        Pros

        You won't find a better place to work with great people than here. Everyone is extremely kind and intelligent and you can tell they want to do right by the company. Pay is competitive Benefits are good Growth in the company is decent

        Cons

        Leadership is very focused on the shareholders and doing what's best for them and thinks about the employee population last. They preach an open/transparent leadership style, but they have been caught promising no layoffs in the foreseeable future, but then go ahead and do it anyway. I wouldn't trust them 100%. Although I mentioned growth being decent, you do have to do a lot to be promoted. It seems a little political at times with this, but if you're well liked and always go the extra mile, you'll make a very successful career here.

          Pros

          the office and my team were nice, but thats it

          Cons

          someone wrote on here that yext has gone through 5 rounds of layoffs in the past 8-10 months. FIVE. I was impacted by the first round of layoffs and frankly it was unexpected because just a month or two prior to their first round of layoffs they said at the company all hands that we're doing great we arent going to have layoffs. like.. okay thanks for the heads up. They laid off people who managed one of their biggest accounts without warning to the client or their employee. How do you expect a company like that to value you as a member of their team?

              Smart people, many came from SFDC and Adobe, many left for for SalesLoft or back to where they came from.

              Cons

              The culture was non-existent, but may well have had to do with COVID and everyone working from home.

                Additional transportation / commuter benefits would be nice, and incentivize me to go into the office more often.

                  Cons

                  one rotation was predetermined, so after 18 months you only try 2 roles

                        Great product. Tons of opportunity.

                        Cons

                        No care for people. Laid off a lot of top performers who had higher salaries to try to cut costs. Execs have major egos and think the product can sell itself. Don’t work here unless you want to live your life in fear of being laid off. The company has gone through 5 rounds of layoffs since CEO transition a little over a year ago.

                      Is it bad interview etiquette to ask about salary expectations WHEN the recruiter fails to bring that up in our screener? I did it so we could ensure alignment and the recruiter said she ‘usually waits to do that after the first call’ 🙄
