Pros

Ability to reach millions of users.
High quality peers and personal networking.
Fun, creative environment.
Decent work and life balance.

Cons

Fairly large org so it can be hard to feel like you've made a meaningful difference to the bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Yahoo should continue to cut non-core businesses and focus on doing fewer things great!
Improve your mobile content and advertising products along with your local information services.

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Laid back company culture
    Management is surprisingly competent (at least up to mid level)
    Unique working experience (no company is quite like Yahoo!)

    Cons

    Not really a industry leader these days
    Upper management is a bit questionable
    Job security feels a bit lax sometimes (2 large layoffs in 2008-2009)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Yahoo! is going in the right direction, but as an additional suggestion Yahoo! needs to start getting aggressive again, buy some startups, introduce some exciting new products, innovate!
