Pros

Great new management, lots of accountability and things moving. People starting to feel excited to work on things and seeing new products released real fast.

Cons

Still buckling under the dead weight carried over for the past 4-5 years. But management is doing everything it can to fix that.

Advice to Management

Do not affect the work/life balance that the company had maintained so far and creating a cut-throat environment.

    Massive scale, great culture, smart people but too much red tape which makes it impossible to move fast.

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Opportunities to work on products at a scale that most other companies do not have. Great work/life balance. Above average pay package, great benefits ( 401k matchingg )

    Cons

    Promotion and hiring inside Yahoo! is now more or less a question of knowing someone, not of being the best at your field. Hopefully, Marissa will address this. Most work is maintenance while developers and engineers wait for the next round of management changes, starting something new is guaranteed to being shut down as soon as the next reorg happens. Politicking, backstabbing, no directorial and above direction, constant goalpost changing, cronyism.
