    I have been working at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, exciting projects, great compensation, and amazing perks comparable to any big tech company

    Cons

    Extremely aggressive goals that are impossible to meet, no consistent strategy, way too many conflicting priorities and groups to deal with, one acquisition after another which leads to even more confusion in strategy and purpose

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get leadership that actually can lead, execute to a strategy, and deliver. Instead, we seem to have poor performance and celebrate it.
