    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

    I have been working at Yext full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The interview process was very transparent, clear, and honest throughout. All promises made were kept and I was communicated with every step of the way. I would highly recommend trying to find a Yext employee to provide a reference for you as that is a clearer path to landing an interview and ultimately (if you do well), a job offer. The sales leadership is the best SaaS and have the company on a clear growth trajectory.

    Cons

    Long time-frame for hiring process

    I worked at Yext

    Pros

    Hard working fun people who learn quickly and love a challenge. What more could you ask for? A stocked kitchen, super generous Seamless budget, and an awesome office? Check. Amazing offsites, healthcare, and investment in employee development? Check. As cars start to drive themselves and location data becomes increasingly important the need for this kind of technology will only grow. Nobody else in the immediate competitive space offers anything remotely as advanced and it doesn't look like anyone will catch up soon (Yext is ~5x the size of the closest competitor and growing literally every day) which makes this office a great place to be. In almost 4 years at Yext I never heard anybody say "that's not my job," and Enterprise Account Management and Sales genuinely collaborate, respect each other and put clients first which is amazing.

    Cons

    The company is growing a ton, and that will never be without pains. The have made huge strides in adding middle management in ways that enable employees rather than inhibit, which was a hole for a while.

    "Best NYC Tech Company - Growing quickly"

    I have been working at Yext for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at Yext is extremely hard-working, dedicated, and respectful. This does not feel like an organization where every seller is working towards a number on his or her own. Every single seller goes out of his or her way to help teammates so that the entire team can achieve its goal. The Enterprise Sales team is extremely lucky to have the best Client Services and Operations team in the business. Also, the product is miles ahead of the closest "competitor."

    Cons

    Some people see change as a problem. They are hired in a specific capacity, but due to the company growing at an extremely fast pace, that role changes slightly after 6 months and might not fit the initial job description. Yext is a fast-paced environment that is a fun place to work. If you want to do the same thing every week, this is not the place for you. If you want to step slightly out of your comfort zone to help grow an amazing business and find new strengths, Yext is a great place to be.

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

    Pros

    Without a doubt Yext has the best product in the market we sell into. This industry is still in its infancy and know that Yext has the best products, engineers, technology, product team etc. We think 3 steps ahead of the competition. All of our clients love us, many will champion us to prospects because we do not oversell our technology and we have earned their trust. They could take away my Seamless and my opinions of the organization would stay highly positive. Yext has always invested in my career development, and rewarded me very well for the business I brought in.

    Cons

    If you cannot adapt to change this organization is not for you. Sales cycles can be longer then you anticipate but as long as you are honest with yourself, keep a healthy pipeline and do everything you can to close new deals you will hit your numbers.

    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.
