Salary and benefits

They paid $40,000 as a base, which is really low in San Francisco. It was heavily commission-based, so if you weren't selling, you weren't making much.

Promotion discussions

I got promoted pretty quickly because I was in the sales org and promotions were based on how much revenue you brought in. Once you hit a certain revenue number, you get a certain job title.

Relationships with manager(s)

I had a few managers since I got promoted a few times. They were more superficial relationships than what I've experienced in my current job because they were so focused on hitting a mark. Sometimes I felt like a tool for reaching a goal. Some were pushy and cutthroat, but generally the managers were pretty good.

Diversity programs

I know they existed, but I don't think they had a huge presence. I was part of the Women's group, and they would bring in people to speak and mentor employees etc. There was a Latino group, but I don't know how involved they were in shaping Yelp culture.

Company culture

Within sales, it was very fast-paced and competitive. There were also a lot of recent graduates and it felt very fratty and very young. People were trying to go to happy hour every day after work. From what I've heard, the non-sales side is pretty standard, though they have a lot more perks for their engineers than others (engineers would get free catered lunch).
