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.

    Pros

    In CU area Yahoo is one of the better option for software development. All at site enjoy work and $$s.

    Cons

    Subtle level politics to keep favorite people (read "yes sir/madam") around by shuffling them around to different roles or teams. Good engineers who disagree have been let go using HR designed performance tools. Managers here define their own version of Yahoo way/culture to justify their deplorable actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finer oversight is needed from VPs. Do not fall for happy, smiley faces.
