Personal opinion of Yahoo!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsWell know brand, strong impact on mainstream media. Extremely smart engineering team, and very ethnically diverse. Higher than average compensation.

ConsYahoo! is often spoken of in the shadow of Google - even though Yahoo! is a prime Internet portal. Also, management is not always transparent, for e.g., with the recent Microsoft-yahoo deal.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to your soldiers: i.e., the engineers before making big-time mergers/deals. It is insufficient to simply loop in upper management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
