Pros

Great benefits, nice campus, nice food options, people are friendly, you get to work on some relevant technologies, nice company events

Cons

Very low employeer morale is taking a toll on those who still want to work here, Upper management gives the same raa-raa speeches will little to back up the talk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to stop trying to convince its own employees that Yahoo is on the right track. Nothing succeeds better than success.

    Pros

    Great place to work
    Lots of smart people
    Good perks, 401k
    Usually good middle management, dependent of your group of course

    Cons

    The senior management just doesn't know how to innovate.
    The board of director appears to be completely inept, and Mrs Bartz should have been fired by now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation, innovation, innovation. Yahoo has some great sites like Finance or Flickr, but doing nothing with them is not the way to go.

    Pros

    Despite decreasing public sentiment and poor earnings, Yahoo! is still a great company to work for. The majority of the employees are very bright and really enjoy working here. Although the perks may not be as lavish as Google or other top tier companies, they are still among the best perks of any company you will find. Yahoo! makes a real effort to make their employees feel comfortable and to bring out the best in them.

    Cons

    Financially, the company is slipping. This is causing jobs to be less secure and certain perks to be downgraded or eliminated. There does seem to be a slight bit of panic in the air. It's not problematic enough to cause most employees to worry, but there is an increasing sense of urgency that things needs to get turned around sooner rather than later.
