    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people and energy. The momentum is in a growth cycle.

    Cons

    With a growth cycle, there are always pitfalls and rough patches. Yahoo is experiencing those rough patches yet proceeding forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have many great people left and new ones coming in constantly. Pay attention and retain those minds and bodies. You don't want this to become a training ground for talent to pick up and leave.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company, good team work. Compensation and perks are good. I have had a free hand implementing and learning.

    Cons

    The rating system that was recently implemented sucks. Good employees lost jobs due to the forced ranking system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the ranking system which is bad for yahoo.
