The company overall is a great place to work for, despite the short sightedness of its executives and board of directors

Pros

some really smart colleagues, very good compensation and excellent health care package, relax atmosphere, work / life balance

Cons

senior management and executives continue to make mistakes after mistakes...they never seem to learn. it's hard to work for a company that you know is not going to go anywhere...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen and be open minded...learn from other successful companies (and not Microsoft). Stop employing people from Microsoft. They're good at one thing: politics.

    Vibrant tech company with a bit too much politics.

    Pros

    Company is supportive - Yahoo encourages and fosters new ideas and technologies and rewards employees for creating new stuff. Many great peers to work with.

    Cons

    Many not so great people to work with. There is a little too much politics in the company. There is a sort of identity crisis for the company - trying to reclaim former glory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really have no advice for management other than to focus on hiring and rewarding the best talent. Don't let Yahoo slip into a has been company.
