    Pros

    Friendly, very transparent culture. Lots of smart people, lots of people to ask for help. All-hands meetings every Friday help build culture and positive attitude. Striving for new and improved everything.

    Cons

    Lots of management, still stuck in some old ways (kind of a given for a company that's been around so long)

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was very unhappy, so I cannot say I had any positive experiences. I was placed in an odd team, this could have contributed to it.

    Cons

    Feudal system feel to the company, the VPs were like dukes and the CEO the Queen. All were unapproachable. The company wasn't doing well and I watched several rounds of layoffs. The commute was long and tedious and the job I had was very unsatisfying. I've moved on from the experience and the culture has probably improved. But when I was there it was a difficult place to work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
