Fast paced, always changing work environment

Manager (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNo two days are alike in this fast-paced work environment. Work is diverse and challenging with a global audience and impact. Intelligent and articulate colleagues with managers who really do take a personal interest in your career. Yahoo! is a major player despite its critics.

ConsCritics and negative media are the norm for this major player. Project teams vie for limited engineering resources. Layoffs are always just around the corner.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter prioritize around the core user experience, innovate, and iterate. Increase salary levels.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
