    Great People. Everyone loves being here and wants Yahoo to win. You will learn A lot and it's just a great place to be.

    A little bit of a struggle right now, but everyone is getting through the restructuring. Everything should be getting better.

    Too many changes at the top in the last 5 years, but still got life.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Despite the attrition, the engineers there are smart and passionate. You have the opportunity to learn to solve scalability problems that few companies have to deal with. The recent instability has created career opportunities for those who aggressively seek it.

    Cons

    The revolving door at the executive level in the last 5 years have made it impossible to execute on any strategic plans, because every new CEO or C-Level executive will reorg and disrupt everything that was in motion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the executive shuffle. No single executive, organizational makeup, or development methodology is the magic bullet to solving Yahoo's problems. Let people iterate on product experiences to make them better incrementally instead of trying to do some huge change every year.
