Pros

Provides awesome perks. Good environment overall. Intelligent colleagues to work with. Appreciable employee recognition. Flexibility to change teams internally and work on different projects. Constant encouragement to get better. Yahoo has come a long way from the company that it used to be 2 years ago. Lots of things have changed, for the good :)

Cons

Complications and latencies of a big company. Need to put in long hours to meet aggressive deadlines.

Advice to Management

Keep up the recent good work! There is potential to get better.

    Pros

    Benefits and perks are fairly good

    Cons

    Highly political, no clear ownership and blurred responsibility boundaries; decisions are based on who are friends with the right people; visions change frequently and projects get worked half way and then abandoned; every project that someone was working on seemed to be also worked on by some other team in some other org
