      Pros

      Amazing staff. Incredible work environment. Loved the perks (i.e. paid lunch, company breaks). Modern office.

      Cons

      Wished there was a little more feedback. Temporary position. Research jobs only (no drafting). Wish position was a little more hands on.

      Pros

      Yext does a great job of creating a good work environment, in a lot of the ways that you expect from a tech company: lots of food in the office, generally relaxed office vibe (no button down shirts required), professional development opportunities, etc. On top of that, there are a couple of areas where Yext really excels: 1. The team environment is real - everyone is working towards the team's success, not their own personal advancement. My coworkers are friendly and nice and encouraging and helpful. Management looks favorably on people who legitimately improve the team, rather than people who work towards showing themselves off. 2. Management is pretty transparent about what's going on at the company. I feel like there is good visibility into what the executives are thinking and doing. 3. People are encourage to get out of their comfort zone and solve problems in new and interesting ways. For example, I have never coded before, but I am learning python in order to create scripts that can improve efficiency on my team.

      Cons

      Yext also suffers to a degree from some of the classic cons of a tech company: while diversity and inclusion seems to be a top management priority, there is a lot of work left to do. The hours can be long, but at the same time, there is no culture of "face time" - you don't have to stay late just for the sake of staying late. Overall, there aren't a lot of cons.

      Pros

      The best work environment you can imagine. Everyone in the SMB department is like family. There is an amazing camaraderie that exists within this company. Whether it is playing a quick game of pool or ping pong, relaxing in the conference room having lunch or going out for drinks after work, you always feel welcome and everyone is always upbeat and positive. The product we sell is the best in the industry and I love explaining the benefits of this software to business owners. The training and sales managers put you in the best possible position to succeed In SMB, there are daily, weekly, and monthly contests with prizes ranging from iPads, Flat Screen TV's, and team dinners. There are weekly manifestos with pizza and beer to finish off the week strong!

      Cons

      N/A. The work environment is fantastic, the pay and commission structure is very fair. All of the tools are there to help you succeed as a Sales Associate.

      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.
