    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Yext full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's just not what it used to be at Yext. No one is happy. It's sad, 3-4 years ago Yext was a GREAT place to work, amazing people + leadership BUT they have all left/are in the process of leaving - feels like your inbox is filled with "Last Day/Goodbye" emails at all times.

    Cons

    - Pay is under market across for all sales roles - Upward mobility is nonexistent - Morale is at an all time low, no one is happy - Lack of direction with product/company vision - Howard Lerman + executive leadership are completely disconnected from everyone else - spend every zoom call showing off their mega mansions and telling stories about partying in miami - "hiring aggressively" is because attrition is at an all time high from all levels - sales executives, front line managers, individual contributors, CS, Sales - you name it - you will always be seen as a number here + replaceable - lack of diversity is an understatement - their diversity "initiatives" are just to check a box and for the press releases
