Pros

Very relaxed working environment. Engineers do have a say on what they want to do and how they want to do it. Compensation is reasonable compared with other IT companies in the bay area.

Cons

Yahoo as a company has failed in many areas in recent years. Many good people have left the company. The company serious needs to have a direction and a goal and some incentive to boost the morale of its employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be straightforward with the real problems Yahoo is facing and focus on the core business rather than spread the money over many irrelevant projects that are destined to die from the day they start.

    Pros

    lots to learn, started out as an intern and was hired full time after college. projects were very challenging, and met alot of great people.

    Cons

    too much politics, and promotions were based not on merit, but more so with politics. also did not receive bonus at one time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too much middle management, with them only managing one more two people.

    No opinion of CEO

    Yahoo! would have been a great place to work had there been a clear direction to the company from its leadership.
