Challenging company

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

I have been working at Yahoo

ProsInternet is a fast and challenging environment. Yahoo! is one of the giants of the internet, still #1 in several properties and as a Yahoo! your goal is to help the company to achieve the success competing against strong competitors in several countries around the world. To achieve this success you must provide the best technology and quality as possible and give the word "innovation" a real meaning in order to make the company survives.

Cons- Ruled by short-term result
- Too much marketing, less engineering
- Development process is not agile at all or enough
- Should listen more the engineers, where significant innovations can come from

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to your engineers, prioritizing some of their ideas. Product managers must understand that the engineers can provide and guide ideas for a technological company.
