Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Things were kind of stagnant under Bartz and Thompson. Marissa Meyer has really stepped up to make life better for the employees and get rid of soul-crushing disfunction. There's a lot more transparency and feedback mechanisms now.

Internal training.

Can work on well recognized consumer brands.

Cons

It's still a large company. Even though Marissa's made a lot of changes there's still some work to be done.

Shuttle schedules don't have a ton of options.
