Great place to work. Best years of my life.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 5 June 2016
Simply put, I love working at Yelp. The training is unparalleled, and the people are amazing. There are several upper level sales opportunities that have clear paths to get to. Unlike many other sales positions, it is unclear how to get promoted, however it seems as though all managers' goals are to get their reps promoted.
The recipe to success at this company is simple: work hard, be the obvious choice, and be a team player.
The hardest part of this job is the work itself, however Yelp is quite clear about what our average level of work is. Cold-calling is never easy, especially when dealing with small business owners, however there are several tools at our fingertips to improve our sales acumen. As long as your goal (as a sales rep) is to genuinely help a small business, there is no reason why you wouldn't succeed.
All in all, would highly recommend. This is one of the few companies that allows college grads to develop a lifelong career with some hard work and dedication to the role.
Free lunches, great people, good beer, gym stipend, awesome health benefits
Cold calling, but it's what you signed up for!
