I worked at Yahoo

Pros

Overall, I worked with some great product teams at Yahoo. Great product managers and technical leads made for some very satisfying job experience.

Cons

At Yahoo, there were too many reorganizations to caused lots of distractions instead a focus on the projects. A Microsoft buyout was not healthy for the organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on the internal workings of the company and less on the stock price and then the products will end up speaking for themselves.

    One of the best brand names. Good work/life balance and culture. Reasonable benefits and overall comp package. People are knowledgeable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks and come up with tangible product strategies
