    I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn, fast paced, diversified in technical skills. And now with Marissa Mayer there is free food and drinks too :)

    Cons

    Disorganized, too many projects with an unsure goal and market strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be the best at what you are good at and dont take too many things at one time , just because everyone thinks it might earn revenue. Because , in high probabilty such ventures go unmanaged and lead to dead end down the line , ie wasted $$$$$.
