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

    Pros

    Free lunch and dinner and pizza and beer Fridays!

    Cons

    No work life balance- expect you to be glued to your computer answering emails all weekend. Ridiculously obsessed with having pointless weekly meetings especially the Finance dept. no wonder these people work till 9pm every night because they waste their time in meaningless meetings all day. No appreciation from management. They only know to point out the bad in your work. Rude and disrespectful executives. They pass you in the hall and don’t even acknowledge your presence. HR is a joke. They do and know absolutely nothing. Mind you there are like 20 of them and not one of them knows anything. They don’t help you out, on the contrary, they are there to screw you over. Avoid this company or else you’ll regret it.

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

    Pros

    Free lunch, free dinner, game room, nap room, all of the free snacks you could imagine, free drinks, pizza & beer on Fridays, weekly manifestos hosted by the CEO... all of that is great, but I genuinely enjoy working with the people at Yext... we all work together toward a common goal & have fun doing it. I've never worked at a company that hires so many nice people (not to mention some of the most intelligent). I can say that after 3 years at the company, this still proves to be a true statement everyday.

    Cons

    Getting everyone to follow processes is difficult sometimes... but doesn't every company have that issue?

    Pros

    Great culture, amazing co workers, great management, Overall, a good place to be everyday. A lot of perks(free lunch being one of the best ones).

    Cons

    Sales isn't for everyone so if you aren't cut out for this type of work all the amazing perks wont be enough for you to be happy. But if you want to grow with a good company this is a great opportunity.

    I have been working at Yext full-time

    Pros

    -Company is rapidly growing. -Lots of talented developers who are a pleasure to work with and learn from. -Leadership places a strong emphasis on good software engineering practices, which makes things easier for other developers and reduces the occurrence of bugs. This is in marked contrast to many other companies where you are encouraged to crank out as much code as possible without any attention to quality. -You can get free lunch delivered to your office every day.

    Cons

    Easy to gain weight from the free soda and snacks.
