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.
