Pros

Truly a unique culture - people here really pride themselves on it's being fun. The whole thing about not caring about heirarchy is pretty true. Also, so many people want us to win - it's almost like being david to goliath.

Cons

Chaos - there is very little organization, strategy, or execution. There are plenty of areas we could improve in, but we haven't managed to pick a few that are really important. It was really telling when even Jerry couldn't answer the question - think it was on CNBC - "what is Yahoo about". We really need to figure that out.

Advice to Management

Pick one thing! We have not learned anything since the Peanut Butter Manifesto!

    Pros

    fun place, good people to work with, professional work environment. Flexibility to work on different projects. Good employee benefits. A great brand on your resume and cool work culture.

    Cons

    mostly dis-organized and ad hoc. Some senior management folks don't have a clue and are poor communicators. Hope fully that is changing with management shakeup. Poor stock performance over past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Know what employees are doing & what systems are being used. More hours and late hours doesn't mean quality work.
