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 Management

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

    Pros

    - Amazing Culture, second to none - the perfect balance of Laidback/Professional Approach that is so hard to hit in Silicon Valley
    - No Management/CEO Bubble - Supportive and Friendly Leadership on the Management and Corporate Level
    - Make Your Own Way - Almost everyone is given the opportunity to shine, make their own careers, and live their dreams

    Cons

    This are minor complaints, really.
    - Some teams lack visibility, where attention might be focused on a larger department
    - Smaller regional offices do not get as much attention as they should
    - Too much focus on product managers, not enough focus on products themselves

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
