    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Yahoo is a decent place to work .. not the best place but manageable. I think there should improve further for ppl to grow.

    Cons

    its political CEO is not that great and she is determined to make sure that the company suffers in the long run

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    yahoo leadership should start focussing on the work in hand and not to do some random things like what they are doing now

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Yahoo! as a company always takes care of its employees. There are a lot of small events always being organized on campus, and it is never a dull day at work. The people are extremely helpful and fun to work with.

    Cons

    The past of couple of years working for Yahoo! have been very eventful, with a lot of external distractions. These distractions should have caused the senior management to realize that the decision making needs to speed up, but unfortunately it hasn't. There are a lot of teams even after cutbacks/layoffs that are still extremely slow moving. Being an internet company I don't think this is very helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reorgs are a move in the right direction, but senior management needs to put aside some of their personal differences and work towards pushing Yahoo! towards the excellence that it is capable of. We have a lot of very very smart people, but the attitude of these smart people towards work most of the times reflects the attitude of the leaders.
