I have been working at Yahoo full-time

Pros

Great place to work. Great benefits. Co-workers are genuinely nice people. Much less political wrangling than I've experienced at some other places where I've worked. Lots of great new products and content. It is an exciting place to work and they value their employees.

Cons

It is an American company, so if you work in EMEA, it is sometimes challenging to keep track of the latest developments that are happening in the US. This issue is not really specific to Yahoo, but is a basic challenge when working in the UK for an international company that is head-quartered in the USA.
