Pros

Very smart group of people to work with. One of the world's largest user bases with huge product potential. Incredible new CEO with the vision to bring Y! back to life.

Cons

Past failures (CEOs) still haunt Yahoo!... but Marissa is making fast work of retrofitting the company for the future. It will take time to turnaround.

Advice to Management

Get rid of any execs who've been around for a while but haven't delivered. Rebuild trust with the team through transparency and communication.

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, good working environment. Despite all the external drama, we kept our heads down and focused on shipping products. Free coffee was a bonus.

    Cons

    Senior management decision making left a lot to be desired. Kept changing direction. Lacked a will to win.


  2. Culture and people are great in Yahoo!

    Pros

    Yahoo has some great and smart people in the company. The culture is also great, and the company has a lot of perks.

    Since the new CEO, the company looks very promising.

    Cons

    Note, my comments are pre-Mayer times. I feel that it is a very self-serve model. It is your responsibility to advance your career. It is your responsibility to file a patent.

    Also, I feel that there is too much in-house technology. This is fine, if you provide sufficient engineer resource. Otherwise, I believe this company needs to use more open-source.

    Direction of the company is always changing, which is due to the many management changes. We finally find a consistent direction with the new CEO.
