    I worked at Yelp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hello. I am an Account Executive for Yelp. Yelp did a fantastic job explaining the job description. They were very transparent regarding the day to day tasks and objectives of the position. Everyone was very nice and supportive! Management cares about their employees and they make you feel important. You also never have to worry about breakfast or lunch with a fully stocked kitchen.

    Cons

    Working as an Account Executive for Yelp was the worst job I ever had. Here is why this job is so terrible: 1. 80 - 100 Cold calls per day, it sounds easy but its not. 2. The local businesses are tired of Yelp sales calls and they just don't want to talk. 3. You know the business owner that yelled at you two days ago and told you ever to call back? You'll be calling them in another two days. 4. Be prepared...

    Advice to Management

    Advice to future employees: Yelp is a sinking ship, before I applied I looked at the reviews and took the job anyways. The money is not worth it, apply for SDR roles instead. Trust this review. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    I have been working at Yelp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen so you can save what little money you do get from this job. Health insurance, which is top of the line and fully company paid until 2020 then it goes to like 90-95% company paid. The friends, but you can make friends anywhere. Don’t subject yourself to this torture just to make a few good fiends.

    Cons

    The definition of torture is: the action or practice of inflicting severe pain on someone as a punishment or to force them to do or say something, or for the pleasure of the person inflicting the pain. Yelp hits every aspect of this definition. Do you know what Guantanamo Bay is? It’s yelp, the United States government sends terrorists to yelp to work in order to extract valuable information out of them. It’s like...

    Pros

    Stocked kitchen, benefits, team environment, spirit, learning opportunities, exposure to odd scenarios.

    Cons

    Silly and time wasting “always right” demands from non-IT staff, communication is a one way street, managers have their own agenda. 3 or more weekly meetings about meetings going over the meeting you just met about, and also weekly 1 on 1 meetings with your managers. Advancement truly only available in San Fransico office unless it’s sales.

    Advice to Management

    Too much busy work and lack of transparency.

    I have been working at Yelp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is an update to a review I wrote in my 2nd month. I have left the Pros largely unchanged because the benefits are truly amazing and that can't be overstated. I have made significant changes to the Cons, however, because working here will slowly but surely eat your soul. Without further ado, the pros: - Excellent insurance (100% employer-paid BCBS PPO) - Fully-stocked kitchen (free breakfast/lunch/snacks/etc)...

    Cons

    Despite the excellent benefits, working at Yelp will eventually destroy you. The entire environment is engineered to be highly stressful every moment of every day, while simultaneously gaslighting the reps and convincing them that this stressful environment is normal/standard/healthy. The atmosphere is so stressful and toxic that people regularly break down crying, throw up in the restrooms, or quit without a backup plan....

    Advice to Management

    Change up the coffee roast – the coffee we have now if a light-bodied, high-acidity roast. Try for something will more body and less acidity. Maybe a dark roast.

    Pros

    Fully stocked kitchen Amazing people Great culture Top notch sales training Personal growth. The job teaches you tenacity and grit. They train you from zero experience.

    Cons

    Okay so here is my rant.. Territories are extremely overworked with multiple touch points every week for years. I feel some biz owners have ptsd or something because when you mention yelp on the phone they have an immediate gut reaction to get off the phone as fast as possible. If your not hyper assertive and go don’t around the objection triangle 3-5 times on every call to get a biz owner to yelp.com you won’t get anywhere...

    I worked at Yelp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People - Throughout my time at Yelp I created relationships with some of my closest friends, most supportive mentors, and peers that I enjoyed spending my days with. When I left, I was upset that I wouldn't be spending 40+ hours a week with them. Perks - As a recent grad with limited income and time, a fully stocked kitchen was huge for me. Not having to worry much about groceries or buying lunch every day took stress...

    Cons

    The role - This job is 100% cold calling. Typically, I wouldn't classify this as a con, but the way Yelp's sales process is set up makes it a con. A typical day looks like this: 8:30am: in your seat ready to go. You are calling your accounts from 8:30am to 12:00pm straight through. from 12:00pm-1:00pm the entire office takes lunch (leading to crowded kitchens and shortage of food). Then from 1:00pm to 5:30pm you are calling...

    Advice to Management

    It's sad because no matter what I say here, nothing will change. I really do think some change within the offices could lead to success for Yelp. Yes, I'm biased but I've had so many conversations with fellow reps about what could be different and we all come to the same conclusions. So my advice to management is to listen to your employees and your customers. There are actually some very smart people there and their...

    I worked at Yelp full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I do not agree with all the people knocking the job because it is "cold calling." I will give Yelp the fact that they are VERY transparent in what your day to day will look like. Bordering almost scaring AE's in the interview process with how many times they tell you that you will be making 80+ calls and facing rejection all day. That is about the only thing they are transparent about though. Fully stocked kitchen,...

    Cons

    Yelp has built itself around a culture of transparency, authenticity and that if you put your head down and work hard you will be rewarded. This is all not true. When they tell you to be yourself, they mean who they want you to be. This entails kissing up to upper management, being corny and "positive" about the job a.k.a not batting at eyelid at anything that doesnt make sense or just plain lies or flaws in the system....

      Former Employee - Customer Success Manager 

      I worked at Yelp full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Fun company "perks" like a stocked kitchen, coffee bar, and a decent amount of team/dept outings. However, lots of this is created to mask how tedious and unmotivating the CS job and environment are.

      Cons

      Hmmm... Where to start. I could develop an INCREDIBLY lengthy list of things that I found wrong with working at this company, but ultimately I believe that most of this negativity falls on management's shoulders. If you read through some other reviews, you'll start to notice a pattern with this. Management at Yelp is (for the most part) young , inexperienced, and essentially brought into a "leadership" role to...

      Advice to Management

      There is no reason to be afraid of people that are at Yelp - contributing - even if you know they are not going to be there forever. This job is not for everyone, and those that have stuck around for years are truly the ones with the thick skin and skillset that you need, even if they're not aspiring Directors or VPs. I fully understand and appreciate the fact that management needs to exist to help guide and develop...
