Advice to ManagementAdvice

A breakup would allow you to raise a lot of cash and increase your focus. Yes, Yahoo! has the title of sole surviving portal company, but the rest of the world is past that. Find your niche in the mobile market and take inspiration from the facebook business model rather than Google's. We have experienced questionable leadership in the past, let's hope the new CEO has some bright ideas and can execute.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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)
