Pros

People, people, people. Getting to work with some of the best and brightest in the internet. Access to early stage launches, challenging yet fun work environment. What other job can you work on something that millions of people touch everyday?!?!?!

Cons

People holding on to what was, forget about what was and make your tomorrow even better. Rigid mid level management. Getting hired there is extremely difficult as HR and recruiters aren't on the same page. For job seekers, build a plan and work it everyday, go straight to the recruiters themselves, the company does a measly 3% of their hiring through the careers site itself. Many if not all jobs already have a candidate in mind.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue the forward momentum, execution, make the hard decisions, hold people accountable and celebrate successes. Identify those that want to win, train them, and get out of their way.

    The culture, work environment and people at Y! make it a great company to settle down at. Their healthcare, onsite benefits and pay also make it a very appealing company too work for.

    Cons

    At the time of employment there was a lack of company direction and executive leadership.

    Amazing challenges, be prepared to tackle problems you've never seen before.

    Cons

    As the goals and objectives are in transition, some products tend to realign their direction constantly. This might be considered a challenge as well, it depends on the perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep the hard work.
