    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros

    Great place to work because you're working with great people. The facilities are fantastic. Innovation was always appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    Sometimes the higher ups were out of touch with the users of Yahoo and they didn't quite understand that recruiting people to Yahoo wasn't the attractive proposition they thought it was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep moving forward. Keep rewarding innovative people. Reward them with the usual compensation, but also promote more from within, and provide more verbal accolades.
