Pros

Very good work life balance and respect for employees

Classic 'ivory tower' behavior by senior management
Senior management believes they know it all and do not seek opinions and advice of their people on the ground
Lacks discipline across the org

Empower recommendations to come from below and transform them into the right decisions
Start behaving in a disciplined way and have expectations of your people
Set goals, measure and have benefits/consequences

    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 Management

    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.
