    Not What It Once Was

    Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsInteresting international opportunities and the chance to work on some interesting project. Generally a relaxed environment and nice co-workers.

    ConsTalent has left the company in droves recently. It's not clear where senior management wants to take the company and what business Yahoo is in. There's very little innovative thinking left at the company and people are less willing to take risks. Corporate mentality has set in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus attention and innovate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Yahoo! is 'fun' right?

    Senior Interaction Designer (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsHigh profile global projects. Great experiences, working alongside some extremely talented people. Nice office, perfect location in the heart of London. Free fizzy drinks.

    ConsSevere lack of direction - zero organisation/hierarchy. Constant restructures and lay-offs. Continuous bombardment of pessimistic media reports. Poor management skills and training throughout the business. Little or no personal development opportunities (unless you are lucky). A severe lack of resources in Europe, despite watching the US marketing team shovel money into pointless plastic toys and vanity websites which do nothing to change the user perception of the brand. General frustration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnd the blame culture, be brave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Matrix Structure Kills Ambitions

    Marketing Director (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsYahoo! is a diverse business and if you make the effort you can learn a lot.

    It has some really smart people. Generally, people are very respectful of one another.

    ConsMatrix organisation which gets worse in Europe.
    Very political and the wrong people are promoted.
    Management does not make hard decisions about people. They keep people who are mediocre for too long. That is why they are in such a mess now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork much quicker. Stop being wishy-washy. Create a strategy and then let the smart people below to develop and implement a tactical plan

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
