I have been working at Yahoo full-time

Proslook good on CV for next job(hopefully)
Food is alright

ConsAbsolutely no career development, your idea will not be listened, if you are an engineer, be prepared to be a code monkey.
No strategy at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementYahoo London engineering team is really not competitive, due to the poor management. The senior director should leave.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Review of an evil

Software Developer (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Yahoo

ProsGood company benefits, plenty of holidays, laid back work atmosphere and dress code, great location in central London, flexible work hours.

ConsIncompetent management at all levels, lack of planning, very poor work ethics at all levels, very poor communication, having to work for a company that betrays free speech by helping the chinese government to emprison pro-democratic journalists, a company making huge profits through its active support of the shark finning industry (Yahoo! owns 40% of alibaba.com), a cruel and barbaric activity banned in many countries but not illegal in China, which has lead of the slaughter of over 90% of all sharks in the last 30 years, putting many shark species on the list of endangered species.

Advice to Senior Managementtake a course in ethics. define your values and stick to them!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
