    Yahoo feels fast, friendly, and flat...like a mini-Google w/o the snobbery.

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

    Pros

    Super-friendly, collaborative, down-to-earth atmosphere. Launching new products everyday. Changing w/ speed. Flat management hierarchy. New talent and energy joining every week. Food is better than Google's.

    Cons

    None that I can think of so far. Might want to cut down the food since folks might get too fat a la early Googlers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to launch beautiful products, innovate, and hire great people! Marissa, you're doin' a great job!

    I have been working at Yahoo as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get the feeling that people want to be there and enjoy being there and i think that had a huge impact on me when i interviewed. the free food is great the new potential for growth is also wonderful. I am hoping the company stays on course and i see big things in the future.

    Cons

    The hiring approval process has been an issue however it is much much faster now then it was around the new year and it continues to change and will hopefully be even faster soon.
