    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large scale operations: Where 100 machines is a small group, and 10,000 QPS is sneeze-worthy.
    smart people: There's always people and experiences to learn from
    internal [horizontal] mobility: Want to change jobs b/c your current one is boring you? There's always another division you haven't worked in yet.

    Cons

    Siloing: groups don't always communicate cross-function very effectively.
    neophilia: Because it's new, it's better.
    Not-Invented-Here: We wrote it, it should be used over anything that wasn't made by us.
    "Bring out your dead!" "I'm not dead!": Internal tools marked 'deprecated' that never get properly replaced.
