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

    Pros

    Yahoo properties are visited by hundreds of millions of people every day. Compensation is good. Freebies abound.

    Cons

    Yahoo lost almost all of its A players, thanks to managerial incompetence and territorialism. This eventually infected every part of the company. Winning ideas did not just fail to thrive, they were actively hunted down and killed. Marissa Mayer may be changing all that - finally.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice other than what Marissa Mayer is doing already. Yahoo needed someone to make tough choices, update the culture and technology, and focus on products again, and that's what she's doing.
