Current Employee - Front End Engineer  in  Sunnyvale, CA
Current Employee - Front End Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

Pros

You are allowed to figure out your own ideal balance between work and play. Hours are very flexible, time off is generous, work early or late as you prefer. Many work from home.

Cons

Poor direction. The last few years have seen projects released with no followup or maintenance, other projects restarted several times or cancelled close to release. There is no clear plan of attack for Yahoo's comeback. Subsequently we have lost almost all the "big name" web devs who used to be a selling point to incoming engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a direction and stick with it. Don't plan and replan and replan, just execute and trust in the results.
