Yahoo = Second Banana

Business Development Manager (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsBenefits are really good, subsidized cafeteria, great people.

ConsLack of direction, morale. Google gets all the attention (and profits). Squandering of a formerly great company.

Advice to Senior Management1) Big layoffs to reduce expenses
2) Figure out what Yahoo stands for - no one seems to know (Google = search, Microsoft = software, Yahoo = ??? email, gossip news???, large audience??). When I was there, Marketing couldn't come up w/ a coherent message b/c no one could figure out what defines Yahoo. A bunch of lame marketing at that time - FUSE acronym, TV commercials w/ people carrying around placards w/ URLs on them, etc.

    The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves

    Product Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros: Most of the people actually doing the work are genuinely good people. They're smart and really want to do good work. Yahoo did… Cons: Where to start... Unfortunately, a lot of incompetence was promoted to middle management when the company doubled in size. A lot. Sycophantism ran… Advice to Senior Management: Walk away and fire everyone left between you and the Sr. Director level. Starting… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
