I have been working at Yahoo

Pros

Great place to work, embraces diversity, open culture, very cognizant of work/family life balance, truly flexible, work hard & play hard is the motto. High end technology & a fun place to be.

Cons

Sometimes a passive aggressive culture. People could be a little more proactive in either agreeing or disagreeing to do something. Atleast then once you know people agree, you have faith they will follow through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better alignment to actually achieve a goal. Stick with the same org until you acheive the goal. Too much disruption can cause the company to keep spinning.

    Pros

    If you're lucky enough to work on the main campus, Yahoo has many perks (decent gym, sandcourt volleyball, a short hop to the bay, etc). Every site has a free cafe, and the benefits package is really good. Oh, and if you're on a project in one of the big properties, you'll be working at a scale seldom found in the tech business.

    Cons

    Expect poor leadership, near-zero agility addressing competitors' releases, too great ideas never implemented, and product vision that is barely powerpoint-worthy and definitely not executable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership team needs to measure projects with clear KPIs and ROI. Too many projects at Yahoo are being pursued because they are good for one person's ego, not because they are valuable to the company.
