I have been working at Yahoo

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

    Unique culture that promotes both playing and working hard. Employee perks are fairly generous. Yahoo provides employees with resources to aide in professional development and growth. Yahoo is one of the leading digital media companies and is recognizable everywhere.

    Cons

    Budgeting constraints get tighter each year and lead to some compensation levels to be below fair market value and affect overall morale. Some members of leadership team who make the money decisions don't have a clear picture of what they are pulling money from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency on how you want the business to be run and what progress is or isn't being made within the company is key. People can't do their best work when they can't trust in their employer.
