Pros

Working with very smart people who are affecting the lives of millions of people -- one of the few places where you really can get in touch with the world as a whole.

Cons

Often too many projects to be able to truly be able to focus on one thing -- many time there is too much legacy making it hard to innovate and launch new ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the company structure right -- figure out the role between regions and head office, and create the reporting structures accordingly.

    Pros

    Amazingly, still has some positive brand value. Folks are generally nice. Not a hard work environment.

    Cons

    Company is on a downward trajectory and it's generally well known that the best people have left - so where does that put the people who are still there?

    The new senior management does not have any web intuition - that's challenging in the Valley - doesn't inspire the troops and only attracts a certain type of employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to do a deal that puts Yahoo to bed - merge it, sell it, LBO it, do something. It's not a growth company, the stock isn't going anywhere and employees are using it as a stepping stone (if that's still possible).
