    I have been working at Yext

    Pros

    I've been working here for almost three months now, and it's still everything I thought it would be. What I was looking for during my job hunt was a company with young people like myself who I not only enjoyed spending the days in the office with, but also people that I could grab a drink with after work as well - that's exactly what this place is like. I enjoy what I do here, as the environment is pretty fast-pace, and I don't spend my day staring at the clock waiting for the day to end. It's also a very fast growing company, so this is a great place if you're looking to move up in a company at a very quick rate. It's also pretty cool to see high-level management individuals, such as our CEO Howard Lerman, walking around the office consistently.

    Cons

    As a growing company, a lot of things are always changing within the office. Not sure if that's much of a con, but I wish we interacted with people from other departments more within our office.

    I worked at Yext

    Pros

    Free breakfast Free lunch on fridays Nice location in Chelsea Nice office environment Dress is casual

    Cons

    You are a telemarketer Expected to work a mimimum of 8:30am to 6:00pm every day doing nothing but telemarketing Very high turnover rate Minimal chance to advance out of telemarketing role Management only cares about sales numbers, not about your professional growth Management is not at all forthcoming during the interview process What they tell you is a "training" period is actually an audition - if you do not sell early and often, they will show you the door abruptly and early in this "training" period Morale is low Every perceived "perk" of this job is designed to keep you in your seat and on the phone so you can sell Expectations change by the minute - one day 3 1/2 hours of talk time on the phone is the minimum, the next day they demand 6 hours on the phone. Either way it's excessive and soul crushing.

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

    Pros

    The best work environment you can imagine. Everyone in the SMB department is like family. There is an amazing camaraderie that exists within this company. Whether it is playing a quick game of pool or ping pong, relaxing in the conference room having lunch or going out for drinks after work, you always feel welcome and everyone is always upbeat and positive. The product we sell is the best in the industry and I love explaining the benefits of this software to business owners. The training and sales managers put you in the best possible position to succeed In SMB, there are daily, weekly, and monthly contests with prizes ranging from iPads, Flat Screen TV's, and team dinners. There are weekly manifestos with pizza and beer to finish off the week strong!

    Cons

    N/A. The work environment is fantastic, the pay and commission structure is very fair. All of the tools are there to help you succeed as a Sales Associate.

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

    Pros

    People in the office are nice. The new office looks great and is an ideal work location. Food allowance is decent.

    Cons

    You will be a telemarketer doing non-stop cold calls from 8:30am-7pm (YES! Including your lunch hour). They will say that it is not cold calling because people come to the site, but nobody will know what the product is when you call them. They encourage lying to people to make a sale because after you get their credit card you will never contact that person again. The staff is very unprofessional and untraditional when it comes to an office setting. The managers are on Facebook or other sites 85% of the time and screaming derogatory statements at them teams for "motivation" the other 15%. Upward mobility? What is that? Does that exist at Yext? NO! That will explain why people use this as an "in between" jobs type of place. The director has said on multiple occasions that he is always surprised to see people make it to 12 months in the sales associate position if they make it past the first 3 months. The pay is $35,000 until you make 40 sales then you will be dropped to $30,000 + commission unless you resign before you make 40 sales.

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

    Pros

    I have never had sales experience before working at Yext. The extensive training program was great and taught me everything I need to know about Yext. Once graduating from the program, I continue to get support and assistance from management every day. My manager has been here for a while and is the best manager I have ever had, at any job! She is always looking out for me and helping me reach my goals. The company in general is great! They give you full medical, free lunch, snacks, and again support from the whole company. Everyone is really nice, welcoming and fun, and I have felt at home here since day 1.

    Cons

    I gained a few pounds from eating all the M&Ms!!

    This is still the best work experiences of my life! Yext is such an amazing company to work for. The product is so amazing and it actually works, which only makes you more confident as a seller. The culture at Yext is even better. Everyone is incredibly smart and super helpful. It's the true definition of a team environment. Also, Free Lunch Every Day! Free Healthcare! Pizza, Beer, Ping Pong!!! How can you beat that?!?! If you have the opportunity to become a YSA, you better take advantage of it!

    Cons

    Honestly, I can't think of any!
