    I worked at Yieldify full-time

    Pros

    Lots of snacks and beers on Fridays, a young and international workforce, an overall good vibe, big list of E-Commerce clients

    Cons

    It's not a project manager role, but more of a rapid campaign generator with some chance to communicate/organise between teams, which is fine if this is what you want to work as. The work was tiring, error prone, and unexciting. Not much room for transferrable skills, and not much tech training or ability to move up or to other departments. Important decisions often came top down and we weren't informed until the day - whether it's people leaving or restructuring etc. There is a lot of blame passed around between teams, and not much trust. Not much opportunities for team work either. The mantra was 'Yep, will do! No worries' and get cracking, no matter how swamped you were. Things started to improve later on, due to a different team structure, but a lot of the fundamental issues of the role remained. Not a bad first job, but not great either.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to send your feedback through to the team. It means a lot to us and we've discussed this with the People Team at length. Firstly, thanks for outlining positive aspects of your time here and thank you wholeheartedly for your time in our team building out our great business. Moving onto the list of improvements, I’d like to let you know how valuable we find your point of view. As you may know we have had a very big focus on restructuring teams and training managers to ensure our team-engagement is high. Just today we’ve rolled out the first of a week of daily Lunch & Learn sessions on impactful 1:1 session, as well as recruitment training, and a quick management toolkit training. I know it won’t fix all of your concerns immediately but we hope it’s a good first step. As I always say, we hope we hear from you again – and I thank you for your hard work when you were with Yieldify. - Jay Radia (CEO)

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

    Pros

    - Some nice people to work with - Loads of drinks and going out - Free unlimited gourmet coffee

    Cons

    - You have to use your own laptop until a few month's in, unfortunately providing you with one is not an obvious action from the management. Even stationery used to be something you need to fight for. - Long hours, ridiculously low pay; hard to get promotions or level up in seniority. It is not ok to leave the office with no serious reason before 6.30pm. Ever. No matter how long your commute is or how little you get paid. - Top management is very young, inexperienced with leading teams, managing or other office to-does - Loads of gossip, back stabbing and everything is SO informal. There are some horrible things you can hear going around about other and possibly even you, as all the desks are shared and everyone is basically in the same room. - Good ideas (brought to the top mgmt) are discarded - Child-like attitude towards everything that involves decision making for the good of the internal team (unless you are not a male employee working in sales) - No perks. No additional benefits or incentives (unless you work for commission). - Only a windmill in Holland has a faster turnover

    Thanks for being a part of our journey through what sounds like a chaotic period in our history, and sorry it’s taken us so long to get back to you with how we’ve reflected on your feedback. I wanted to let you know that our team and their happiness has moved front and centre in my (and our team leads, managers, execs, and people team’s) agenda. Our perks are stronger than ever, and we’re working on new benefits for our employees every day. Free coffee and beer, great open plan offices (with fantastic events), socials, huddles, lunches and snacks, and more! The health and wellness of our employees is being addressed, including mental health; and we’ve got yoga, meditation, Chief Happiness Officer (Thubten Gelong), Ma and employee relations assistance programs. I’m pleased to let you know that although I’m aware we weren’t perfect, the lessons I learned during our chaotic establishment period are being addressed, and I reflect on those days often with the view to improve for the future. Thanks again for your feedback and for being a part of our journey. – Jay Radia (CEO)
