Pros

Benefits and salaries are very competitive. Environment is great. Not too stiff. It's amazing to work with some of the most talented and intelligent people in the industry. A great place to grow professionally. free coffee. awesome training and development opportunities. the most amazing and engaging conversations I've ever had in any job. Great people! Amazing energy at this company!

Cons

can never keep anything straight with all the re-orgs and projects dying and being created. difficult to follow or understand the direction different teams or management is going. Too many politics and hidden agendas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus on a small set of products and deliver amazing results rather than trying to work on many things and doing an okay job at all of them. Take the approach that Apple has over recent years and focus on a small set of things and deliver an amazing product!

    Pros

    Lot of good internal internet technologies, smart and knowledge people, marque brand.

    Cons

    Each team can be very different, thereby no standard work culture, some first level managers are great, some not, a bit outdated policies such as salaries 10 days after the pay period, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The audience scale and the brand itself render this place fun. Given Yahoo! is a leader in display advertising, this is a great company to get solid experience in this industry.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions, too many layers, restructuring continually with poor decisions being made about layoffs, leveraging expensive consultants for restructuring purposes when they should ask for hand-raisers first, business units not aligned, acquisition employees not incentivized to work hard and they are sitting pretty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify goals and get rid of roadblocks who hinder revenue generation and fire the leaks to Valleywag.
