    It's awesome.

    Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsGood ongoing projects. Amazing and interactive team. Team is not too small and not too large (about 10~15 at max.). Perks. Food. Open culture and excellent leadership by Marissa Mayer.

    ConsI don't see any cons right now. Maybe the routine may become one con.

    Yahoo is a great company that is goal driven and cares about their employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the culture, leadership and compensation/perks that Yahoo provides to employees. There has been a tremendous push to make Yahoo the place to work.

    ConsYahoo is a big company and with that you need to have a number of processes and transparency is difficult to obtain since so much is happening.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency needs to improved on every team and come from the top down. Hire from within. Find a way to reduce the goals process.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
