    • A culture of inclusion for all levels and identities • Extremely competitive compensation packages • Industry leader and visionary that cares about its customers • Comprehensive enablement program for ramp-up • Leadership with emotional intelligence and awareness for what their teams need to be successful

    Cons

    • Growing pains are real - the company has had explosive growth globally and this means a constant adaptation in processes that aren't always captured and shared with those involved, creating confusion at times.

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

    Pros

    Snacks in office. That’s about it.

    Cons

    The worst company I have ever worked at. Avoid it go work somewhere else where they value their employees. Male white dominance. No diversity, rude and cocky executives, no work life balance, benefits decreasing and becoming more costly to employees. This place is a no no!!!

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

    Pros

    No pros at this time.

    Cons

    Yext used to be the happiest and best place to work. Management cared about you on a personal and professional level took time to get to know you, your strengths and weaknesses, talk about long term career growth, and properly train you. There was upward mobility, transparency, and work life balance. I genuinely wanted to come to work every day and looked forward to it. Yext is still a great place to work if you love micro management, unqualified and unhelpful new sales leadership who never meets 1:1, and huge pay gaps between team members (up to 40k difference in OTE salary because of personal ties). When you start you will receive no training because both enablement and sales leadership do not know the job or how to sell. At Yext, you are a number and you are disposable no matter how long you have been here or how well you perform. It seems like everyone in revenue is interviewing elsewhere, even AEs who have been here less than a year. No one is happy, no one is successful. Yext is a fundamentally different company than it used to be. There are better software companies to work for with a better product, better marketing, enablement, and leadership, work life balance, where you are not a number and will get paid way more.

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

    Pros

    Yext is an incredible company that truly cares and invests in their employees. I've never been more proud to work for a company. Perks are incredible, free Seamless everyday for lunch AND dinner, free snacks, pizza and beer every Friday, 401k matching, onsite mental health days, often communication from senior leadership and CEO every week, and much more. Culture is extremely laidback, and you can wear whatever you want. Extremely open culture, positive for women and minorities. I can't say enough good things about the company.

    Cons

    The only con is that there is too much food available. Gotta be careful with those peanut m&ms

    Pros

    Just started here but everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful as I am in training

    Cons

    Things can change kind of frequently which may come across as unorganized however that is just the nature of a tech business trying to grow. However, they are transparent about it.
