    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    relaxed work atmosphere, Friendly managers, Great facilities like Iphone and Macbooks provided. HR policies are more Employee friendly. Unlimited sick leaves.... Good recreation facilities within the office... No work pressure.

    Cons

    Layoffs. They just lay you off out of the blue with no pay... No job security. Top management changes plans drastically which inturn affects BU's.. Pay scale is poor compared to industry standards for non technical folks. You will quit instantly if pay is what drives u...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying better and have a more structured way of laying off ppl... else its a fun place to work.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    free food, perks, open source technologies, cab service, lot of smart people (who are now leaving in large numbers), was a fun place to be

    Cons

    everything else. management has become extremely political and they just do whatever it takes to save themselves and the engineers are the scapegoats. There is no real innovation happening here since people have become extremely defensive to meet their QPR numbers. Everything is now tied to your ratings (e.g if you want to transfer to another team you need to have above average ratings which you can get only if you can lick your manager boots). Marissa has destroyed the company culture and values for her own benifits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being authoritarian and bureaucratic. Take care of the employees that have stayed with you for long. Scrap the QPR process.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I worked with in my career were from Yahoo. You get to do some really interesting work and learn a lot here. HR policies are good with a nice work life balance.

    Cons

    Too many changes at the top level led to shifting priorities. Road maps were made and abandoned and this led to a drop in morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stable policies are important to keep employee morale high.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Yahoo, is one of the best companies to work with. Its values, the talent base, perqs, etc. Over the years, I have seen a lot of good things happening. First thing that attracted me was the culture - people were so friendly and healthy, early days the managers were so good and motivating. Then, there have been ups and downs like any other company. As a company, it is progressing well. The latest strategies, the latest innovation plans and strategies are quite encouraging and motivating.

    Cons

    There have been downs as well. I have had in average 2 managers per year. And many things are tied to your manager. Thus, this is a big minus. From my perspective, Salary is the biggest con. Opportunities are sometimes not equally given to all; this is again a drawback. So, Career growth takes a toll, at times (for some).

    Pros

    Lots of learning, loads of fun, awesome people, challenging work. Have a chance to impact millions of people with your work.

    Cons

    Sometimes things are too much top down and the pace is so fast that you get very less time to think through and you end up executing at break neck speed and sometime end up doing things that are not as good as you want them to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate redundancies
