A lot of talented smart people but, sadly, no vision for the company at the senior levels.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great people Competitive salaries + benefits Yahoo! has a lot of great products - it's a shame that there isn't a tighter/closer integration between them

Cons

Too many silos to work through You spend more time in meetings than doing actual work (work frequently spills into evenings) Lack of a consolidated vision for the company Most people work hard, some are hiding in the gaps

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of smart colleagues to learn from Wonderful laid back environment Flexible Hours Well rewarded for good performance Foosball and pool tables tasty cafetaria

    Cons

    Comparatively underpaid Dirty politics in some teams Too much process A little behind in adapting cutting edge analytics Should provide a little training for engineers moving into data analysis

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay to avoid people jumping ships Crush politics and people going behind the backs of colleagues
