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 Management

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

    Great company. Wonderful employees. Awful leadership.

    Pros

    Yahoo treats it's employees with an enormous amount of respect and goes out of its way to try to do what's right for its employees. The positive values and culture within the company are a reflection of the values of it's co-founders.

    Cons

    The worst part about working at Yahoo! is it's poor senior management, lack of vision, and the power struggles that happen between internal groups due to the silos within the company. These elements take a significant toll on employees and contributes to the low morale and frustration within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what Yahoo!'s unique assets and strengths are and focus on building products based on that foundation. Cut everything else that is a distraction from that. Focus on building products based on what users want, not on what advertisers want.


  2. So much promise.

    Pros

    Some really great people who work hard and try to move the dime forward everyday.

    Cons

    Too many people that don't have a clue and are willing to take very one else down to prove it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deep look at yourselves and your staff. Make the right cuts, don't just do it blindly.
