    I have been working at Yelp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Trendy tech office with all the perks; food, baristas, ping pong, video games, after hour kegs. Decent base salary, generous commission, Cadillac medical plan, dental, flex spending, 401k, stock plan with options, vacation. Great culture, progressive, tolerant, celebrates all successes, super limited overtime (they just don't wanting you working past 5:30), happy hours, outings etc... Youthful office with high energy.

    Cons

    Pretty much everyone starts as an AE for SMB. It's hard. It's a high volume sale with high metrics. You can't slack off on this job. There is favoritism and it's unchecked. You can switch teams but you need a mentor in-house or you can't move up. Executive management is not transparent enough. Anyone who Googles Yelp gets more information from Yelp management than employees do. It can sometimes be frightening so you have to try and not obsess over it. Some managers are too immature and interaction with them can be off putting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, don't be afraid to tell your employees everything, even the bad news, we can take it and we read about it anyway. Find a better pathway out of Local Sales, the one you have now is cliquey and some immature ones get promoted over more qualified candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA (US)) in February-2016.

    Interview

    3 interviews via Skype. First with technical RH director. Two with iOS engineers.
    I sent my resume via an employee met via LimkedIn. Two days later I received a reply to plan a first interview. I succeed, and I received an email to plan two technical interviews via Skype. They were very friendly.
