    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work is interesting. I like the clients that I work with, and the people in my office are phenomenal. People are, for the most part, excited to work here. Lots of products, so a good salesperson will focus the conversation around client goals, and cater a plan that suits them. Really good for someone who has both an analytical and artistic mind.

    Cons

    Lots of different products to sell, so ramp-up is difficult. Four different systems, and lots of processes and teams that you need to work across to get anything done. Layoffs are claimed to be performance-focused, but I've seen a few rockstars who were let go, just because they had one bad quarter in the past, and each time, that's been due to reasons beyond their control (I worked directly with two of these workers). Some layoffs make sense, but I've seen too many solid performers go, and their managers were never asked for any feedback prior to the layoffs. This has a lot of people scared that they'll get cut and has really hurt morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get smarter about the layoffs. We know you need to make cuts, but solicit feedback from your managers. If you don't trust your managers feedback or decisions, that's a completely different issue that needs to be resolved, but it hurts everyone when we see true team players who have been solid performers for Yahoo get cut.
