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

Pros

Collaborative, focus on transparency, the energy of a start up, phenomenal CEO who has inverted the pyramid. People that make things happen (i.e. software engineers and those supporting them) are the most valued. Great opportunity to be part of an amazing turnaround story for a company that was written off just over a year ago

Cons

Still some tough decisions ahead.. Focusing on the high growth strategy. Some senior managers still need to go. HRVP is qualified to lead biz dev but doesn't seem to get people stuff. They ought to let her do biz dev by itself, bring in somebody like the guy at Google

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free food (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks...)
    Work environment
    Perks

    Cons

    RSUs are allocated in a questionable way
    Too much paperworks (Goals every quarter / reviews, status reports...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way that RSUs are structured makes not much sense. As you move up in title, it becomes harder and harder to exceed expectations. It is much easier to get 'Exceeds' (and the coveted RSUs) as a low level engineer.

    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.
