    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)


    - very talented and seasoned workforce around you
    - opportunity to move across domains and verticals
    - excellent leadership team, CEO meets employees every week


    - few really old people in the system doing the same thing for 10-15 years and are not open to discussion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the whole organizational alignment per the yearly goals so as to avoid friction.

    Interview Details

    Had three onsite interviews, which were easy to medium in difficulty. The interviewers did not seem that well prepared but everyone was in general friendly and competent.
    However, HR is a mess. It took them over three months from the day of my onsite interview to send me an actual offer letter, which is completely unacceptable. Furthermore they didn't communicate with me at all--they'd tell me they would get back to me that week and then not respond for another 2-3 weeks. And you can bet they won't reimburse you for your onsite interview.
    I had a good onsite interview experience and might even have considered Yahoo had their recruiting team not been so awful. It really reflects badly on the rest of the company.
