I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

After 5 CEO's as in as many years, the outlook here at Yahoo! is looking much brighter since Marissa has come onboard.

Cons

Free food? Free iphones? Free Macs? There isn't a CON I think of. Other than I wished these changes happened sooner (Marissa) before we lost so much good talent.

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

    Pros

    Yahoo makes a lot of money in Internet media. Great brand, global presence

    Cons

    The company has no focus and is not a product, technology driven company. Brand experts say the biggest problem with Yahoo is that you can't describe it in 5 or 10 words, let alone any single one word or concept, (like Search, Social Network, Online Auctions, etc..) Therefore the Brand and the expectations related to it, are all over the place. No compelling vision, all things to everyone therefore nothing great to anyone. Behavioral Targeting and data-driven personalization technologies were the most interesting area at Yahoo. The rest of the media properties are average at best.

    Advice to Management

    Find a focus, ANY focus and a story to tell investors.
