    Pros

    Loyal Yahoos have an amazing pride and faith in their company.

    Cons

    Very chaotic. No direction. Lack of good business hygiene. Finger pointing. Fear of failure. Revolving door of leadership leads to continual changes in direction and inability to complete anything.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing. Provide vision, strategy and leadership. Get rid of people who have gotten too comfortable and don't want change, (or at least move them around)

    Pros

    - Interesting work and challenges
    - Massive compute and storage scale
    - Training, conferences, travel ops just enough to keep things interesting not overwhelming
    - Employees treated like "gold". 2x better than any of my past employers
    - Good work/life balance on most teams
    - Excellent compensation and benefits

    Cons

    - Lots of churn in management.
    - Lots of churn in staff, mostly old timers tired of change.

    Advice to Management

    Yahoo is a complex environment. Learning all the processes, procedures, and technology takes time. Bleeding too many experienced employees stunts progress. 1 employee with 5 years experience is worth more than 5 employees with no experience.
