Pros

Interesting international opportunities and the chance to work on some interesting project. Generally a relaxed environment and nice co-workers.

Cons

Talent has left the company in droves recently. It's not clear where senior management wants to take the company and what business Yahoo is in. There's very little innovative thinking left at the company and people are less willing to take risks. Corporate mentality has set in.

Advice to Management

Focus attention and innovate.

    Pros

    - you can learn alot
    - challenging tasks
    - smart people around

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Fails are punished quickly, but the only way to avoid to fail is to do nothing.
    Additionally simple tasks have too many stakeholders.

    Listen more to engineers who base decisions on facts.
