    Former Employee - Senior Technical Yahoo in Sunnyvale, CA

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

    Pros

    - good benefits
    - free meals (it was subsidized when I was there)
    - smart people
    - most coworkers are helpful
    - one of the few companies where most of the managers are there to help you grow
    - was a leader in its fields and is finding its way back to be leader again

    Cons

    C-level executives have been lacking in vision and courage in the past. Not sure if that is the case today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find new niches and own them. Decide if you are a media or technology company. Or both. Hire people who can understand and bridge the gaps between these two (sometimes) conflicting goals.
