Account Executive

Account Executive (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

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

ProsYou 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!

ConsVery 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
