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.

    Used to be where greatness goes to die; but maybe Marissa Mayer can change that.

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

    Pros

    Yahoo properties are visited by hundreds of millions of people every day. Compensation is good. Freebies abound.

    Cons

    Yahoo lost almost all of its A players, thanks to managerial incompetence and territorialism. This eventually infected every part of the company. Winning ideas did not just fail to thrive, they were actively hunted down and killed. Marissa Mayer may be changing all that - finally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice other than what Marissa Mayer is doing already. Yahoo needed someone to make tough choices, update the culture and technology, and focus on products again, and that's what she's doing.
