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

    Pros

    Fun culture. Good people. It seems that the company has a definitive direction, and the leadership has a good handle on keeping the course while looking for opportunities to innovate, which is a tricky balance to strike.

    Cons

    Seemingly limited upward mobility from entry level positions, but they've been making strides to develop from within recently which is really good to see. Leadership can be somewhat inaccessible at times. Revolving door.

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

    Pros

    Snacks Young Environment The ruse of being "your own boss"

    Cons

    Horrible management - too young and act too "cool" to confront people about serious issues. Barely no pay. Cannot sustain a life in NYC. Terribly abusive commission structure. Clear favoritism. Immaturity and use of excessive profanity habitually. No upwards growth whatsoever out of the position.

    "Don't attempt to become a YSA"

    Former Employee - Yext Sales Associate 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Yext full-time

    Pros

    The location of the office, some cool people, free lunches (that you eat while at your desk, with a headset, calling people), and the ability to wear what you want are all positive attributes to this painful job.

    Cons

    The Yext Sales Associate position is something I would NOT recommend to anyone who wants a job that is meaningful and engaging. You are essentially a pushy and rude robot, sitting down at a computer all day doing the same thing over and over again. One thing that was not made clear AT ALL during the interview is that they hire you to fire you. You are "hired" but you have to undergo a training but actually an "auditioning" process where you need to make 40 sales in 40 days or else you are fired. Out of a training class of 10, I think only 2 end up not quitting or getting fired.

    I have been working at Yext

    Pros

    Yext is a pioneer in it's field, and it's exciting to be a part of a company that's really taking off. There's a fun work environment but you're also expected to work hard. Yext definitely keeps its employees happy (offering happy hours, dinners and such), and the people here are great!

    Cons

    Doesn't match 401k but hopefully that'll change in the future. The company is expanding quickly so benefits are hopefully going to follow suit.

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good office environment. Good networking opportunities. For kids coming out of college, fair way to start making money quick, if you can sell.

    Cons

    Chop shop mentality. See employee's as disposable. No real loyalty. Constantly changing environment makes it difficult to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Looking back, I now realize how good I had it at Yext... A great young staff, caring and supportive managers, and lots of perks. From Yext, I learned incredibly valuable sales techniques that I have taken with me onto my next job. I still maintain a great relationship with much of the staff too, and I don't anticipate that changing. -Great first job- learn to sell -Motivated sales floor and great camaraderie amongst YSA's (Yext Sales Associates) -Young employees, great "start-up" feel -Company Seamless accounts + fully stocked kitchen + company happy hours -Inspiring CEO -Given leads -Good product -Paid training -Competitive benefits -No dress code ....and what's better then working in the heart of Manhattan.

    Cons

    -No stock options -Limited upward mobility -Gained 15lbs quick
