I worked at Yahoo full-time

Pros

Great environment to work in. Main campus was extremely comfortable. Great flexibility and work-life balance.

Cons

The people used to be the reason to work there. Smart, engaged, excited and passionate. Then everyone got lazy and morale was low...probably around the time Jerry & Dave decided not to sell to MSFT.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Yahoo makes a lot of money in Internet media. Great brand, global presence

    Cons

    The company has no focus and is not a product, technology driven company. Brand experts say the biggest problem with Yahoo is that you can't describe it in 5 or 10 words, let alone any single one word or concept, (like Search, Social Network, Online Auctions, etc..) Therefore the Brand and the expectations related to it, are all over the place. No compelling vision, all things to everyone therefore nothing great to anyone. Behavioral Targeting and data-driven personalization technologies were the most interesting area at Yahoo. The rest of the media properties are average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a focus, ANY focus and a story to tell investors.
