We might be a little biased, but we think Yelp is a pretty darn cool place to work. And now, you won’t have to just take our word for it -- the Phoenix Business Journal has named Yelp the #1 Best Large Company to Work For in Phoenix in their annual Best Places to Work Awards.
Maybe it's our amazing health and medical benefits and fully-stocked kitchens that pushed us past the other nominees, or perhaps it's our upbeat office atmosphere with music playing and themed decor that sealed the deal. Either way, we’re thrilled to receive such an honor and will do our best to maintain the #1 spot for years to come, as employee satisfaction is of utmost importance to the Yelp team.
With so many fantastic companies up for nomination, the selection process was a thorough one. Earlier this year, employees from over 125 companies across the Valley completed internal surveys on everything from work-life balance to benefits. Over 80% of Yelp’s workforce took the time to participate and share their opinions, and the results speak for themselves. People love working in a positive, casual environment where support and continued training are the number one priority. So when you start a career at Yelp, you can feel confident knowing that you're starting at a company that will make you feel right at home.
