    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No two days are alike in this fast-paced work environment. Work is diverse and challenging with a global audience and impact. Intelligent and articulate colleagues with managers who really do take a personal interest in your career. Yahoo! is a major player despite its critics.

    Cons

    Critics and negative media are the norm for this major player. Project teams vie for limited engineering resources. Layoffs are always just around the corner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better prioritize around the core user experience, innovate, and iterate. Increase salary levels.

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Leading technology, you can work on top of many standard tools. Like to work in a big company with flexible working hours. Also, the pay is still not bad compared to previous companies I worked for.

    Cons

    Bad management, relatively low morale. You got to motivate yourself, and learn how to work under layoff situation. Need to grow their business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advices.
