I worked at Yahoo

Pros

There are some smart, talented folks working for Yahoo.
Compared to other tech companies, the work environment is pretty tame, and supportive of work/life balance.

Cons

The lack of company vision or even hope of market success is depressing. When I tell friends in the industry that I work for Yahoo, they offer their condolences.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what you want to be when you grow up, before you lose all of your mojo.

    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros

    1) good/decent pay
    2) lots of bright, intelligent people to work with
    3) good opportunities for career growth if you have initiative
    4) good opportunities to learn, if you have initiative

    Cons

    1) always a firefight, every day
    2) lots of stupid people to work with (law of averages)
    3) at the time i was there, the layoff situation/notices was entirely demoralizing
    4) executive management (starting with filo & yang, then all their cronies, and finally carol) at yahoo is such a joke. they are disinterested in any of their employees, only mindful of their personal agendas. sadly, things got done by extremely motivated middle management and below--anyway--despite the idiocy from the top

    I have been working at Yahoo

    Pros

    Got to work with some great people and also go to work on some great projects. All in all, it was a positive experience.

    Cons

    The work was a little unchallenging. Sometimes lost motivation. But not too much of a biggie, not too many conns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The annual review could be done in a better fashion. Better opportunities for advancement would be welcome as well as better pay.
