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 Management

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

    Pros

    The people at Yahoo! are great! the culture is fun, but hard working.

    Cons

    The company is pretty unstable, but I hope that it does pick up.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you can figure out process and stick to a decision that will really grow the company.
