I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)
Work Life Balance Technology focus Management structure current flat without too many layers Several good investments done over the years
Vision on what the company stands for is unclear Gets impacted by investors a lot because of weak core business Management, Board of Directors at the top 3 levels are clueless of what is required to turn this company around. All the approvals to come from Marissa Mayer causing a massive roadblock. Uncertainty keeps draining very good employees. Most of Yahoo's employees have turned out to be very good entrepreneurs. Middle Managers treated very badly to scape goat any bad decision at Exec level
Advice to Management
People on the ground are still willing to work their very best to turn the company around, but if all the decisions are going to come from top down, then the chance of turnaround is very less.
The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yahoo.
- Two phone interviews - Final round is present one of your own project + a design exercise they sent one day in advance The questions are pretty typical. No really tricky ones. The interviewers are nice.
