Decent culture, but too much uncertainty

I worked at Yahoo

Pros

The most interesting aspect of working at Yahoo is that you get a view into how humanity uses the internet. From a sociological perspective, it is fascinating. Also the diversity of projects, both for the lateral flexibility and just for the purpose of personal education, are also a plus. Its strong international presence is also a plus.

Cons

The lack of cohesiveness among divisions and the lack of a convincing strategy for growth at the top level. There is a strong BlackBerry culture, which is annoying because people don't think twice about messaging while you are talking to them. The company is rather cheap too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the fat and focus.

    Pros

    yes this is a good place to work. It is doing some cutting edge stuff right now. So, I like it.

    Cons

    there is a lot of external noise from all the icahn and microsoft stuff. It just needs to go away to let yahoo focus on creating great products.
