    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Disclaimer: I quit many years ago.

    It was great to work on innovative products that were used by millions of people all over the world. The talent pool was all-in-all great and the work environment is fun and friendly. Great compensation level.

    Cons

    Upper management changed constantly as did the operating thesis. This led to high turn-over and lots of missed opportunities.

    Slightly de-motivating to be with the constant beating horse of the Valley.
