    Definitely not my scene, perfect for people who just want to sell.

    Pros

    Easy to get into! If you seriously want to be hired, just channel your inner Ke$ha and you're good to go. Most of the people are pretty nice, nobody is really "out to get you" as long as you don't end up with duplicate leads. They provide lunch, pay for happy hour (even though I would rather get more money than cheap booze and salty food, but hey, to each his own). The health benefit seemed good enough.

    Cons

    There seems to be no professional development, which leads to poor communication from lower management (mid level management was perfectly fine, possible too good for such a small operation and upper management was not really an issue for me) I am specifically talking about the team leads who clearly never opened a communications book and never learned about organizational behavior. To the person who thinks benefits are for 50 year olds: you're in the perfect place. Stay at Yext, you'd never make anywhere else. I think it is also important to point out that $50k is an unreasonably low salary when you're spending over 50 hours per week at work (which isn't even guaranteed, that's only if you consistently make sales and always hit above average numbers).

    Pros

    The culture is the #1 reason I accepted this job. It's young, upbeat, fast-paced, and innovative. There's always a smile walking past you in the hallway and optimism filling the building.

    Cons

    The sales training was one of the better training sessions I've been through, however the sales floor has high turn over. Employee morale & burn-out rates are closely correlated: low morale=high burn-out. The floor is so young because most people do leave SMB with 12-18 mos.

    Pros

    Seamless allowance, snacks, drinks, pizza/beer Fridays, office location, training.

    Cons

    Phones, phones, phones all day, they don't recommend even breaking for lunch (a lot eat at their desks), a lot of small business owners think it's a scam/don't have time to talk/don't call back, 40 sales in 40 days required.
