I worked at Yahoo full-time

Pros

- Absolute best benefits
- Great work-life balance
- Great campus vibe
- Opportunity to learn a lot
- A lot of smart people work here

Cons

- Stack ranking has made it very competitive and it's not enough to just do your job well, you have to outdo your peers which makes things very political

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Innovate, innovate and innovate.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    casual dress. free food (although it really comes out of your salary...)

    Cons

    Dishonest management in the Omaha office. The whole company is so disorganized and the higher ups have no idea how bad it is (or just don't care). They get rid of new employees who work extremely hard and bring fresh perspectives to the company, while virtually all managers and directors who have been there since the declines began are unquestioned. No way the company will return to its "glory days".

    I have been working at Yahoo as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is free food, a gym, friendly people. Another nice thing is there is a shuttle to and from many location around the bay area.

    Cons

    The company is a little stagnant as far as growth, so there is not a lot of upside for career advancement at this point.
