    Pros

    Lots of talented people, very high profile projects to work on. Instead of having to pretend you work to scale, it is very much a daily given that you have to.

    Cons

    Lots of hierarchy, many middle managers battle another by trying to get lots of people reporting to them, which means you might get tossed around a lot without being able to leave your mark in a project and fully understand it before you move on.

    Advice to Management

    Use the outcome of hackdays better. They fizz out as a perk after 2 years

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great benefits. Co-workers are genuinely nice people. Much less political wrangling than I've experienced at some other places where I've worked. Lots of great new products and content. It is an exciting place to work and they value their employees.

    Cons

    It is an American company, so if you work in EMEA, it is sometimes challenging to keep track of the latest developments that are happening in the US. This issue is not really specific to Yahoo, but is a basic challenge when working in the UK for an international company that is head-quartered in the USA.

    unfortunately the company appears to have lid a bit since 2000, hanging onto ploys to get pageviews and really pushing for search share with lazy tactics

    Advice to Management

    innovate
