    I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice Work Environment
    Maybe a little aging but still good technique stack
    Reasonable role assignment

    Cons

    Too much political struggle. Constant changing in the project plan. You are allowed to do what you want and push new inovation but expect hardly going anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change organization chart and has a deep reform

    I worked at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation. Work was reasonable as a new hire freshly out of university. They have a good mentoring program and good tech talks to gain knowledge of other teams' work.

    Cons

    Sometimes the teams lack direction. Work gets boring or monotonous after a while (depending on the team). It does not seem easy to switch teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better management of teams and work to be done
