    Once a great culture, now turning into a concentration camp.

    Pros

    Free food, that's about it. All the pros are in the past, the pros are leaving in droves.

    Cons

    After all the layoffs and people leaving on their own, the core of hard workers are being overworked covering for those who are gone. Since the recent layoffs were done without any consideration for workforce requirements, they simply let people go based on their imbecilic quarterly reviews, now products are virtually falling apart without people to support them.

    Smart managers left or are leaving, the one's that are staying are mostly snakes good at politics and have nothing to do with improving company's performance. Just wait till Ali Baba goes public, and see what remaining value is left in this dump.

    I worked at Yahoo as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Yahoo is one of the oldest internet companies in the world. Some of the managers I have seen are in their mid 30 or 40s. Clearly they are the company's legacy.

    Woking time is flexible. There will be a mentor for each new employee. Nice and friendly environment.

    Cons

    The size of the company is shrinking. It gives me a little unsafe feeling.
