A good place to work if you care about you future growth

ProsVery 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.

ConsYahoo 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
