No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Nice people. Good work environment

Cons

What the hell is up with their leadership? The revolving door holds no optimistic outlook for me. They let good people go just to cut costs. Not good.

Advice to Management

Focus. Become Tech company again. Focus on making the technology that can compete and overtake the googles, twitters and facebooks of the world.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.


  2. Lots of smart people, friendly people, good work/life balance, but too many middle managers

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My group is awesome: friendly people, very supportive managers, great work/life balance and fun place to work, great perks (free food, free smart phones & laptop of your choice)

    Cons

    Too many middle managers who unnecessary complicate and slow down the projects, regular lay-offs which demoralize employees

    Advice to Management

    The current management is moving in the right direction. Keep it up!
