    Advice to Management

    Upper management should quit - or force peers to quit. Communicate more to all employees instead of trying to gloss over problems - address them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Interesting work and challenges
    - Massive compute and storage scale
    - Training, conferences, travel ops just enough to keep things interesting not overwhelming
    - Employees treated like "gold". 2x better than any of my past employers
    - Good work/life balance on most teams
    - Excellent compensation and benefits

    Cons

    - Lots of churn in management.
    - Lots of churn in staff, mostly old timers tired of change.

    Advice to Management

    Yahoo is a complex environment. Learning all the processes, procedures, and technology takes time. Bleeding too many experienced employees stunts progress. 1 employee with 5 years experience is worth more than 5 employees with no experience.
