I worked at Yahoo full-time

Pros

Great environment to work in. Main campus was extremely comfortable. Great flexibility and work-life balance.

Cons

The people used to be the reason to work there. Smart, engaged, excited and passionate. Then everyone got lazy and morale was low...probably around the time Jerry & Dave decided not to sell to MSFT.

    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!

    Too many middle managers who unnecessary complicate and slow down the projects, regular lay-offs which demoralize employees

    The current management is moving in the right direction. Keep it up!
