    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.
