Former Employee - Senior Manager In Operations in Sunnyvale, CA
Former Employee - Senior Manager In Operations in Sunnyvale, CA

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 ManagementAdvice

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

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
