    Pros

    Extremely smart people, diversity, passion for the mission, global footprint is honored and practiced. Laser focus on goals at scale, tied and aligned to your individual value. Weekly leadership meetings extremely informative and valued.
    Focus on products is crystal clear and very exciting.

    Cons

    New leaders bringing in their "own" from the outside and leaving some of current Yahoos as risk or simply overlooked for new opportunities. Quarterly performance can be intimidating and not always clear - if new then you're likely to get a lower rating in the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New leaders building their teams should take time to meet and learn more about their current amazing team before hiring externally. The wealth of knowledge and commitment to the corporate mission are assets that can't be quickly or easily replaced.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview Details

    Sat down for an afternoon of interviews after a few phone calls. The first interviewer did not know he was interviewing me until the morning of the interviews and took 15 minutes out of the 30 given for a technical interview asking about my background. He was unable to articulate his question about Hash tables. Outside of this poor experience, the other three interviewers were very interested in using the full 45 minutes provided to them to ask a question, and then dive deeper into space/time questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Sample Questions:
      1 - Given a pre-order traversal of a BST represented by an array of integers, generate the tree
      2 - Given an infinite number of servers with an infinite amount integers on each server, return the median integer. Assume a finite amount of space and time.
