    Pros

    look good on CV for next job(hopefully) Food is alright

    Cons

    Absolutely no career development, your idea will not be listened, if you are an engineer, be prepared to be a code monkey. No strategy at all.

    Advice to Management

    Yahoo London engineering team is really not competitive, due to the poor management. The senior director should leave.

    Pros

    Personally, I've had a very good experience working for Yahoo. I have been offered a number of promotions and gained a lot of valuable experience. However, although I believe that this is the product of my own hard work, it does occasionally seem that others have had less valuable experiences.

    Cons

    Seems that if it can be over complicated, it will be. Recently there has been a complete lack of direction, confounded by the utter inability of the Senior Management team to instill any belief in the company, or in their skills as leaders. There is far too much bullsh*t rhetoric that at times seems to fly directly in the face of what we are being told. However, if you can cope with this, then its fine.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear strategy, and stick to it! Way to much disparity in communicating what it is the company stands for. And it would be nice to see the stocks go up, for a change.

    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

    Well respected company, good benefits, decent opportunities for advancement, ability to travel or get transferred overseas, reasonable salaries, excellent facilities

    Cons

    constant re-orgs, too many middle managers, institutional inertia, jumbled decision making, organizational lack of focus, lack of innovation, hard to accomplish something challenging

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction, focus on it, and stick with your decision.
