    Pros

    I joined Yahoo eight years ago.

    When I first joined, the company was a fun place to work. The thrill of coding something that had impact on the life on hundreds of millions users was overwhelming. It made me extremely proud.

    Even today I still have no regret in staying at Yahoo this long because I, and the team, has moved the product to the top rank on the market.

    Cons

    For the past several years, Yahoo has been on this downhill slope. And so far I haven't seen the end of the tunnel yet.

    Yahoo has become a place that emphasizes on the show/demos. It appears that the upper management is running the company based on PPTs, not realities.

    For example, the company has adopted agile process and CI. But everybody seems to forget the original purpose of having agile and CI. The only thing, that matters, is the green light on the dashboard. Nobody pays attention to the quality of test cases.

    Advice to Management

    1. Talk to the engineers.
    2. Get a reality check
    3. Get rid of PPTs


  2. "Fun rewarding and fruitful career wise."

    Industry is killing the Yahoo stock and thus leading to company loosing its vision. Every new management guy has a new vision :(

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a plan - not make a new plan every year.
