I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very approachable senior management.
Nothing else I can think of

Cons

Too many people managing the show, rather than adding any value at all.
Keeps building products with total disregard to what works does not work in the field
Nothing seems to be going right here.

Advice to Management

Please do something different, rather than trying to be so inward focussed.
