    Pros

    Lots of good people, talented engineers and very good co-workers. People are mostly friendly, the company is extremely good about responding to social challenges (being green, volunteer work, donations, etc).
    There are lots of cool technologies to work on.

    Cons

    The senior management is incompetent, looming lay-offs and the morale is down. There are lots of cool technologies, but not enough direction. There's also so much bureaucracy. Fix the Parking, we have an external website to showcase the bad parking for chris'sake!
    Also what's up with the cafeteria ? I think some one is getting a kick-back!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and focus on the things that will get Yahoo money. Sell to Microsoft if you have to.

    Pros

    There's a lot of smart people there and there's also constant change so you'll rarely be bored. It's a pretty fun environment to be in. People are mostly friendly. The company is extremely good about responding to social challenges (being green, volunteer work, donations, etc).

    Cons

    Management is inept to the point that it's nearly impossible to get things done. There's also so much bureaucracy that it's become a laughing matter. Parking can be an adventure in itself. And you'll tire of the cafeteria food. It doesn't help that there aren't many other places to dine within walking distance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that they're the problem and do something about it.
