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

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.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    New execs are trying to interact more and give more feedback.
    Hiring talent is a priority.
    There is a great energy in the campus.
    Focusing a lot in mobile.
    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.

    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 $$$$$.
