    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As long as things are moving smoothly your schedule is fairly loose and you are free to come and go as you like. The people I worked with were all in the same boat and always were supportive and eager to work with each other

    Cons

    With the financial situation they are in it seems they are simply not interested in investing in good talent. Also they went from having their fingers in too many pies to having their finger in just one pie hoping it would work but with no real back up for if/when it fails.
