I worked at Yelp full-time (less than an year)

Pros

You get to work with great people and the culture is great! A lot of parties, drinking, games and fun!

It's a great resume booster, learns the ins and outs of inside sales, learn how to be bad ass on the phone!

Cons

Very stressful environment! The turnover is really high and the pay sucks! The managers put so much stress on their team that it takes away the fun from the position. You're always worried if you're going to get canned.

    I worked at Yelp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cool office, fully stocked kitchens, very good training, 100% of health insurance is covered. Fun culture if you are in your early 20s. They have some fun contests (giving away iPad minis etc). You'll get some great initial sales experience here.

    Cons

    23 and 24 year olds are constantly promoted to management positions (which puts them in charge of 8-12 other sales reps). The reason for their promotion has nothing to do with management skills, but has everything to do with how much they suck up and drink the koolaid.
    The pay is abysmal. Imagine making $30k a year in SF or NYC.
    Managers sleep with reps on their teams, there is tons of office drama, yet nobody gets punished for it.
    The territory system is a complete and utter joke. You're given the same quota in Mobile, Alabama as you would have in Beverly Hills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold your employees accountable for their actions. Start drug testing your management team. Ban in-office relationships. All of these things make for a very toxic environment. Promote people that will actually be good managers instead of playing favorites.

    I have been working at Yelp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The training is really good at Yelp, the people are really nice and supportive. There is always a chance to move up to a higher more fulfilling role and, compensation is great when you perform well.

    Cons

    The culture can be a little College like at times Fratty and such. Cool people but it feels like school days all over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
