    Current Employee - Principal Engineer
    Current Employee - Principal Engineer
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation is very good. There are some extremely good engineers working at Yahoo. It can be fun, but it isn't always. In general I have loved working at Yahoo. Just not sure what I think of it lately. I'll have to see how Ross works out as CEO. At least he's human and a reasonable on at that.

    Cons

    Management is in constant turmoil.
    Promotions to Architect are very difficult to come by - it's more like an old boys club.
    You depened on a lot of other teams doing their part for you to be able to ship. Some of those teams are very poorly staffed and/or managed. Those teams always seem to miss their dates and their code quality is poor. There needs to be more accountability in the orginization.

    Flat hierarchy should be there with more visibility for each individual
