Amazing people and possibilities but bleak

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Yahoo

ProsAmazing people working on unsurpassed problems and solving with great excellence. People do not appreciate the great undertaking of maintaing one of the biggest websites on the planet and yet still keep innovating.

ConsAlthough a lot of people are very excited to be working at Yahoo, it looks like a lot of people still lost that fire that were keeping them going.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure people are excited to be at Yahoo. There is a lot of potential here and the Yahoo brand is still worth a lot.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
