    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits and culture.

    Pro for some people: this is one company that you can get rewarded and promoted for failed projects.

    Cons

    Poor Management - investing in products that have no ROI or revenue gain - lack of directions for the teams. Decisions tend to be made more for personal gains than what is best for the company.

    Too many academics and few think out of the box or care about the business of making money. Lot's of inventions and ideas but no ROI. It's sad to say this.... a billion dollar company that don't know how to develop software. Lot's of talk about technology but none on monetize them.

    Lots of failed projects - a failed project is one that does not work better than the previous versions, no addition ROI, users don't like it, and is not stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why? They don't listen or understand. Need smarter and more brave management.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
