I worked at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good people to work with, fair life balance and very competitive salaries.

Cons

Lots of politics, and a revolving door for managers. I had six managers in three years. Very difficult to advance ideas even though the company mantra is to "speak up and be heard". Be careful about this, because if your ideas clash with others more politically connected you could find yourself shoved out of the way very quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look down once in a while and help create a more open discussion environment.

    Pros

    Amazing training programs and trainers, really spent a lot of time learning about all aspects of an internet company.

    Cons

    There were clearly favorites among management who didn't have to worry much about job security while the rest of us sweat it out daily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management is totally insulated from the nonsense that goes on beneath them. There is no one company culture, it all depends who your boss is and what location you sit it at a certain time.
