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

Pros

Nice people. Good work environment

Cons

What the hell is up with their leadership? The revolving door holds no optimistic outlook for me. They let good people go just to cut costs. Not good.

Advice to Management

Focus. Become Tech company again. Focus on making the technology that can compete and overtake the googles, twitters and facebooks of the world.

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

    Pros

    It is a great place to work with strong culture irrespective of the location one works in. The people are pretty smart and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The management direction until the now has not been that great. It remains to be seen what will happen with the new CEO at the helm. Many projects get canned after a lot of investment which is a loss both to the company and its people

    Advice to Management

    Transparent communication and clear strategy/goals is required to move the company forward.
