Former Employee - Software Engineer in Burbank, CA

I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Lot of existing tools quickly build a product
- Groups are generally fairly autonomous, you can have a say in product direction
- Perks aren't bad
- Plenty of smart people haven't left, can still learn quite a bit

Cons

- Lots of layoffs (at the time)
- Misallocation of resources- some groups have more people than they need, others don't have enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Free food was a great idea. Huge morale booster.
