Probably not a good idea to publicly slam the company that pays your bills and the CEO that signs…
Kris Gellci

Don’t bite the hand that feeds is exactly the motto that keeps dogs from attacking when they’re abused.

What she may or may not know already is that she really isn’t describing just Yelp, but rather corporate America as a whole. Could she do something else? Sure, but the grass isn’t usually greener. They’re all the same.

Calling out the CEO for his net-worth is reasonable too. Because the guy created the company doesn’t mean he made the company, and it doesn’t mean he deserves such an unreasonable amount of money. Do you know how he made the money? By exploiting people like Talia, and the American public. His money comes from overcharging the general public and underpaying the people who make the company go. He doesn’t, he is the most replaceable person in that building. That isn’t to say a CEO can’t screw up that company but it is to say that he is one guy and we tend to over value the reach that one person is able to have. It’s the sum of the parts that create the whole, the sum of the parts is barely different without him. So no, he doesn’t deserve that money.
