    I worked at Yext full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food, gym, and snacks.

    Cons

    If you don't mind terrible management (I mean, awful) work here. If you are a PM or a designer - just know you will churn and burn. Long hours of WAITING for a reply. Talk about diversity and inclusiveness? You won't technically get it. It's majority based on internal referral, sadly enough to say. Hostile environment with it's neutral colors. Beautiful location.

    I worked at Yext

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, and challenging work day to day. CEO is incredibly inspiring

    Cons

    Cons like any other big company, starts to get disjointed between different departments and don't recognize who actually works here or not. With the provided meals, not unusual to see some employees work super long hours in a day

    Pros

    Opportunity to be part of a growing company that really cares for its employees. Great benefits, and lots of opportunities for learning and trainings. Promoting from within the company is very common.

    Cons

    There have been some growing pains as the company scales. Many people work long hours, but its more of shared passion than a requirement.
