Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great pay , great perks (onsite gym, onsite oil change, onsite massage .... these things can be invaluable: for example, with the gym you don't need to spend extra 30minutes driving to and from the gym everyday, so that prompts you to go to gym more, which promotes your health and overall happiness)

great technology (after 15 years of accumulation, it's got many secrets that outsiders don't know, what we had was already the best after trial and error). great people (at least before the large-scale attrition in recent years) so that you can learn a lot from them: to name a few: php inventor; the perl camel book author Randal Shwaltz;....

Cons

some important strategic initiatives not pushing through. yes they are delivered, but the effects are not as great as wanted, so that they did not manage to turn the tide for the company's fate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

unfortunately the tech industry needs more hype and buzz these days to consider you to be a hot player in the market, though yahoo is having good money flow, it's being ridiculed for not having as much hype as FB, for example
