Pros

Personally, I've had a very good experience working for Yahoo. I have been offered a number of promotions and gained a lot of valuable experience. However, although I believe that this is the product of my own hard work, it does occasionally seem that others have had less valuable experiences.

Cons

Seems that if it can be over complicated, it will be. Recently there has been a complete lack of direction, confounded by the utter inability of the Senior Management team to instill any belief in the company, or in their skills as leaders. There is far too much bullsh*t rhetoric that at times seems to fly directly in the face of what we are being told. However, if you can cope with this, then its fine.

Advice to Management

Develop a clear strategy, and stick to it! Way to much disparity in communicating what it is the company stands for. And it would be nice to see the stocks go up, for a change.

    Advice to Management

    I can't imagine the pioneer in Web and internet to settle being a "premier media company"

    Pros

    Compensation is very good. There are some extremely good engineers working at Yahoo. It can be fun, but it isn't always. In general I have loved working at Yahoo. Just not sure what I think of it lately. I'll have to see how Ross works out as CEO. At least he's human and a reasonable on at that.

    Cons

    Management is in constant turmoil. Promotions to Architect are very difficult to come by - it's more like an old boys club. You depened on a lot of other teams doing their part for you to be able to ship. Some of those teams are very poorly staffed and/or managed. Those teams always seem to miss their dates and their code quality is poor. There needs to be more accountability in the orginization.
