I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Smart people. Tons of users. Lots of opportunity if you're effective at getting things done in big organizations.

Cons

Too many layers, which slows does the ability to innovate and respond effectively to opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the layers. Focus on the key media properties: Sport, News, Finance, Front Page

    Pros

    People are smart and friendly, good pay, free lunch and snakes, doing very interesting project related to Yahoo! advertising.

    Cons

    Champaign is a comfortable and good place to work, but if you prefer big city, it won't offer the things big city have.
