    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free internet access from your desktop computer, unlimited filtered water... so drink up! Fridge is stocked with free milk. Fresh wood chips for coffee. Fancy Soda vending machines which charge you 0.50 cents or more. Free pinball and fooseball tables, if you are found using it... then your manager will lay you off or give you zero's for your review.

    Cons

    No salary increases for years, no promotions for years, they have you work like a dog nights/days/weekends with no thanks. All of management will tell you that they have no budget for anything (which are lies). This is by far the worst tech company I have every worked at. If you are unemployed and desperate for a job... you really should think hard before you accept an offer here (sometimes unemployment is better then this place).

    Advice to Management

    Yahoo needs a re-boot, it's time to let go of everyone between manager level and Tim Morse. Yahoo could save so much money and probably turn a profit from the cost savings. Time to remove everyone from the board of directors, they have all failed the company. Any person off the street could take this 15B company and turn it around to be 150B, the problem is... you are going back to the same group of fools to get direction.
