Navigating the company culture

August 6, 2020

Take ownership of your own development. You need to know what you want to do or what you want to get out of the job because people won’t come up and ask. I scheduled coffee chats with people in roles I was more interested in.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Training and career development

There was a lot of recurring training. Sometimes it would be with your immediate team, but sometimes your manager would just check in with you. They also had all-day seminars and things like that for people to go to. It felt sufficient for me, but I know there were other people that weren’t succeeding. They would make career development plans for people that were struggling.
