Pros

Latest cutting edge projects, web scale problems

Cons

lack of top-level guidance/vision. Top level leadership is unsure about the direction to steer Yahoo, and that becomes a big drag on employee and hence productivity.

    Yahoo! provides great means for great results.
    Highly skilled environment that accelerates your career development and personal growth.

    Yahoo! actually decided to kill his technology sanctuary and let go brilliant motivated engineering teams.

    Be hand dirty and stay personnaly connected to the ground.

    Pros

    Great senior management team.
    Great direction from my lead.
    People are friendly.
    The culture is addicting.

    Cons

    Hiring approval process takes time and we lose great engineers to competitors. It's getting much better now so I have confidence in the new process.

    Advice to Management

    Managers (TA managers) are doing a great job!!
