    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, when office was open, food, snacks, awesome peers. Super sexy company. Awesome kickoffs. Stock

    Cons

    Toxic culture of arrogance from top down. A "kiss the ring" attitude in the "presence" of leadership. Cutthroat and unnecessary stress from internal politics.

    I have been working at Yext full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, good sales training, solid products, great people and culture. Teamwork very important to success. Good base salary, RSUs is a plus although stock hasn't performed well.

    Cons

    Leadership hires in their favorites, usually from Salesforce. Deals for Answers product are small, don't expect to bring in big commission checks.

    The product is a rock-solid market leader, customers love it and grow their partnerships with Yext every year. Seasoned, incredibly professional leadership team. Compassionate, inclusive atmosphere. Excellent comp and benefits. Five stars.

    n/a unless a fast-pasted changing environment is not your style. Bring your A game.

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

    Pros

    - innovative, good product - bennies - company perks (only if you are in NYC)

    Cons

    this list is longer... - sales management (notice I did not say leadership) in untrustworthy - a ton of pre-sales resources but you have to build your pipeline yourself if you want real deals - two-faced management team (nice to your face but will throw you under the bus in a hot minute) - very political - revolving door of enterprise sales talent (hiring and firing aggressively) - quotas don't take into consideration (market's view of product value + premium price points) you need to discount a lot to stay in the game so few are hitting numbers - if you wanna make $$ - don't come here - hustle all you want but you are only rewarded if you are in the "in crowd" regardless of your sales talent

  10. "Super Smart Team, Really Fun Company."

    I have been working at Yext full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Yext has tons of day to day employee benefits you can read about in other reviews, but what I don't think is highlighted enough as a pro is that at Yext you work with a team/company full of people who challenge you every day and help make you better at what you do. The sheer brain power housed on the 5th floor of Madison Avenue is outstanding. Our co-founders are visionary, our engineers are unrivaled, our client facing teams are smart and trustworthy (not alway so in sales!). The culture embraces and is fueled by nerdy, eccentric, and energetic personalities. If you want to be apart of something great, you will find it at Yext.

    Cons

    We are going through some serious growing pains right now. This is inevitable for fast growing startups and the changes happening (to business process, management, job roles, etc) will be good in the long run for employees and the company. However that doesn't make it any less painful or burdensome to the team here now. There is light at the end of the tunnel, I can see it.
