    Pros

    Best part about working with Yahoo is the amount of talented engineers you get to work with. I learned a lot about technology just by reading through various mailing lists where these tech-experts are educating other yahoos on the best practices. Its a casual, open work environment which helps you relax and maintain a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The company has no direction. the business units does not have enough control over their engineering resources. Promotion opportunities are less as most of the business units are not faring very well. It gets worse by total lack of communication between the upper management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please decide what YAHOO really is !!! is it a media company or search company ? Yahoo could be a very good place to work if they fix the senior management

    Pros

    Great engineers and a good place to start your career. Engineers are friendly and can be fun as long as you're not in the management ranks.

    Cons

    Horrible management, senior management does not do anything despite feedback about bad management. All the losers were kept and the good people were laid off. Employee morale is at all time low. Having worked for a long time at Yahoo! and having had several managers, I can see that there's been a drastic change over the last 2 years. The management has only gotten from bad to beyond help.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job and help your VPs and directors find another job too.
