    I worked at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, difficult problems. Excellent compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Work life balance! Under Marissa leadership has started to demand insane work hours on the theory that Yahoo is fighting for its life. Also, as a former manager at yahoo, I can say that QPR (stack ranking) is completely arbitrary. Managers give their rankings and VPs can override them on a whim in calibration. The only way to get high ratings is to be "visible" to senior management. Which means self promotion is more valuable than your actual contribution.

    Advice to Management

    QPR is destroying the culture, work life balance helps you retain people.
