I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very smart group of people to work with. One of the world's largest user bases with huge product potential. Incredible new CEO with the vision to bring Y! back to life.

Cons

Past failures (CEOs) still haunt Yahoo!... but Marissa is making fast work of retrofitting the company for the future. It will take time to turnaround.

Advice to Management

Get rid of any execs who've been around for a while but haven't delivered. Rebuild trust with the team through transparency and communication.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. The company has a bunch of good products and content to offer.

    Cons

    If you are not in Sunnyvale, you are not treated very well.
    Don't get bought by Yahoo! If you do, you probably won't have a job in 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    You need to talk to each other.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, good working environment. Despite all the external drama, we kept our heads down and focused on shipping products. Free coffee was a bonus.

    Cons

    Senior management decision making left a lot to be desired. Kept changing direction. Lacked a will to win.
