Pros

Great benefits, nice campus, nice food options, people are friendly, you get to work on some relevant technologies, nice company events

Cons

Very low employeer morale is taking a toll on those who still want to work here, Upper management gives the same raa-raa speeches will little to back up the talk.

Advice to Management

Management needs to stop trying to convince its own employees that Yahoo is on the right track. Nothing succeeds better than success.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Despite decreasing public sentiment and poor earnings, Yahoo! is still a great company to work for. The majority of the employees are very bright and really enjoy working here. Although the perks may not be as lavish as Google or other top tier companies, they are still among the best perks of any company you will find. Yahoo! makes a real effort to make their employees feel comfortable and to bring out the best in them.

    Cons

    Financially, the company is slipping. This is causing jobs to be less secure and certain perks to be downgraded or eliminated. There does seem to be a slight bit of panic in the air. It's not problematic enough to cause most employees to worry, but there is an increasing sense of urgency that things needs to get turned around sooner rather than later.


  2. "The culture and people in my group cannot be beat."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Unique culture that promotes both playing and working hard. Employee perks are fairly generous. Yahoo provides employees with resources to aide in professional development and growth. Yahoo is one of the leading digital media companies and is recognizable everywhere.

    Cons

    Budgeting constraints get tighter each year and lead to some compensation levels to be below fair market value and affect overall morale. Some members of leadership team who make the money decisions don't have a clear picture of what they are pulling money from.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency on how you want the business to be run and what progress is or isn't being made within the company is key. People can't do their best work when they can't trust in their employer.
