Very good place to work. You get leisure, money and less work

Technical Lead (Former Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork culture very good, no limitations for work. Can learn anything and do.

ConsFrequent Layoffs, communication gap between management and employee

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pay proper attention to the reason why an employee is leaving, not every time they leave for higher salary. Few things you can stop just by listening to employee and address his concerns. If you dont have time to listen, employee doesnt feel to stay.
