    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.
