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

    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

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
