    I have been working at Yahoo as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very open minded culture with a lot to offer to learn. Top Customer care company. Different interesting areas and multicultural feeling.

    Cons

    Contractors get no benefits. You can stay for several years without getting the chance of a contract. Since the late changes benefits are only and specially focused just for the US despite it is a transnational company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many people get there without being committed to their jobs and just waiting for the paycheck when working after a while. The professional growth has a lack of existence in many countries. The clear preference with the benefits only over the US employees is an open invitation to rethink the philosophy of the company and how much other markets are way less important to it.
