    They were once a great place. If you go there, go in eyes open and be careful who you trust.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. And Yahoo is a great name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Horrible culture. A lot of incompetent people that rose quickly in the early days hold management positions and keep making bad decisions. Business units are too siloed. Serious inability to cooperate between business units and/or functions with a unit. Yahoo! Hotjobs is the absolute worst business unit. All management there are buddies & they are all incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house (which I think they are doing). Listen to customers. i know deal with Yahoo everyday and there isn't a single person in the media industry that will tell you that Yahoo is easy to deal with. They are horrendous. Make customer service and sytems designed for customers the focus.
