I have been working at Yahoo

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Yahoo gives independence to innovate and there is transparency in all processes. Also, you get to work with some of the best engineers in the industry.

    Cons

    Given that Yahoo is not at its peak - business wise, you have to deal with a lot of unnecessary pressures. But it also gives a rare opportunity to perform and deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment where things happen faster. We need to fail fast to improve our chances of success. Yahoo has every needed capability to succeed.
