Pros

Yahoo hires top quality, the products and science is pretty good.

Cons

The company has no direction and it is a dying company. The projects gets changes from india to sunnyvale so often. There is no sense of ownership. Some of the managers in yahoo so not good with people management.

Advice to Management

Tell the employee this is what you will work on for next 6 months, have some career prospective for people.

    Pros

    -> The best Team you will get to work with -> Work culture is simply the best. You look forward to go to office in the morning -> You get to work with latest technologies -> it encourages to follow your dreams, help you even if that means going away

    Cons

    -> As everyone knows - what does their leadership think before making decisions? -> Saw 3 vision changes in 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Change Yahoo into multiple entrepreneurship hubs. No directions to them, no holds barred. Even if you select 100 such companies within and give each 2 million dollar (after usual VC fund raising process that teams have to follow), you have lost 200ml $ and you may get 2-3 billion dollar products.
