I have been working at Yahoo as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Wonderful people, excellent software. One of the better companies I have worked for. Good benefits, option to WFH and decent pay. I am very happy.

Cons

Not many cons. Morale has had it's ups and downs with every new CEO but I think Marisa knows what she is doing and every one seems to have gotten a morale boost with her on board.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    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.
