Pros

With Marissa Mayer, free gourmet snacks and food- breakfast, lunch, dinner. Free gym. There are decent engineers and PMs there.

Cons

Lacks cross functional trust. Their managers do not promote team work well either. It's now a dog eat dog worldy. Their bonus structure is destructive to morale.

Advice to Management

Band together to form a more unified and productive Yahoo. Measurements don't always tell the full story. Middle managers are in dire need of people training.

    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.
