Former Employee - Technical Yahoo in Champaign, IL
Former Employee - Technical Yahoo in Champaign, IL

I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than a year)

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.
