    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros

    Front-end engineering, as a profession, started in Yahoo.
    There's great pride in the work people do
    There's little politics at the engineer level.
    Opportunity to move around and work with other teams.
    Yahoo supports open source software.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs and restructuring.
    There should be more options, bonuses, and incentives to keep loyal employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop slashing to make profits for Wall Street. Invest in the future.

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Its really a good place to work, where we are motivated enough to come up with hack ideas that can be productized. However, it is different part of the story that, most of these initiatives are killed or not considered immediately when they reach VP and SVP level.

    Anyways, one always feels proud to work here, and amuse his speculative mind

    Cons

    - Big Thinkers all around but sometimes they fail at execution
    - Management needs to expedite the process of bringing things into production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hassle free approach to convert an idea into a product - Management needs to work in this direction
