    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)


    They had some great perks and you get a chance to solve problems on a very large scale. I got some exposure to exciting open source projects.


    Very disorganized and very low morale. There were huge layoffs while I was there, and one of the founders left. It was a rough time for Yahoo! Also, although they embrace open source, a lot of tools that are critical were forks of open source things that were poorly maintained or quickly abandoned. Some of the more mature forks developed into basically proprietary tools, with little, or poor documentation. There was a lot of out for number 1 and teamwork was lacking. Many teams did basically the same thing and didn't even know their counterpart teams existed (including mine).

    Advice to Management

    Give people more time, less meetings. Embrace new ideas, and don't kill projects in the name of pleasing shareholders. So many changes in direction was wasteful, and Yahoo! paid a high price for that. It seems like things are much better now, under Mayer, but while I was there, there were to many bosses, not enough workers, and too much power struggle and politics. It really overshadowed the reasons I wanted to be there.
