But those are just a few of the enviable perks Yelp offers its 900 New York-based employees. Founded in 2004 and headquartered in San Francisco, Yelp is a nearly $US3 billion company that allows consumers to locate and review businesses on its mobile app and website now. It now has seven offices around the US and Europe, including one in the heart of Manhattan that Business Insider visited.
