Pros

Yahoo was a fun place to work provided you landed in the right business unit. HQ is a beautiful campus with free coffee drinks (often barristas will commit your favorite beverage to memory and start your drink order while you are waiting in line). Many onsite amentieis include subsidized cafeteria food, dry cleaning, oil service, fitness classes, hair cuts, dental visits and of course educational training.

Cons

Unfortunatley, Yahoo was one of the most complicated, politically matrixed organizations you can imagine. There was lots of politicking and in-fighting between business units with many embittered longtime territorial veterans. Be ready for turf wars!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees are smarther than you may think. Work @ home was one of the few remaining incentives to work at Yahoo. Marissa made a big mistake by rescinding this perk. The employee hemorrahge will continue.

    No job security. Revolving door of management.

    Pros

    The people are great (below senior managers)

    Cons

    Senior Management, no loyalty. Zero stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some loyalty to the people who work for you. Get your act together and stop laying people off and devastating your staff.

    Pros

    Know smart people and learn a lot from the software and technology industry

    Cons

    Pay is not as good as other technologies companies. Still not doing very well but it seems Yahoo es getting better with it new CEO Marissa.
    I hope this changes in less than a year or people will start to leave
