    Former Employee - Account Manager  in  Barcelona (Spain)
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Barcelona (Spain)

    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Working for one of the biggest brands in the internet industry.
    - Good salary and bonuses; especially when compared to national standards (Spain is equally valued to France and Germany).
    - Plenty of ways to socialize and relax during working hours, increasing productivity.
    - Great people!
    - Office is very well-located.
    - Room for special projects (MBOs).
    - Management is very approachable and flexible when it comes to annual leave.

    Cons

    - Work itself can become pretty dull from time to time.
    - No(t much) field/outside office experiences.
    - Little to none (true) projects in the Barcelona Area regarding corporate social responsibility.
    - Extremely process driven working culture, with from time to time absurd reporting requirements from management.
    - Very slow innovation; mostly months of delay after changes in US have taken place.
    - One size fits all mentality, doing Europe the American way. Doesn't work.
    - Few career opportunities inside Barcelona Area; hardly any opportunities that are not directly about generating revenue.
    - Unrealistic goal setting; although most achievable, some markets over-achieved by far whereas other nearly made it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more on inspiring and motivating your employees to achieve great things (outside merely making money), before they get too fat.
