I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You get to work with some of the smartest people in the industry. Excellent company benefits. Telecommuting is allowed.

Cons

rollercoaster ride of emotions due to CEO's coming and going. Lack of strategic direction. Layoffs are always looming

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the layoffs to appease the shareholders. There are a lot of smart people working there, and you are just losing talent. If you are going to layoff folks, start at the top. These are the folks responsible for the strategic direction of the company.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting work, and sense of pride throughout the company. A strong sense of fun and innovation, and camaraderie among teams. Many opportunities to learn and advance.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization - I had 10 managers in my last two years there. Often felt that senior management was detached from what we were doing, and there was no flexibility in, for example, HR policies for different kinds of teams. (E.g. The lowest performing person on a team of all-stars was put on performance management for low performers, even if his/her performance rating was in the top percentile across the organization.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management have figured out that taking on new properties or companies needs to be done more thoughfully so that Yahoo! overall can be more integrated, open and effective.
