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

Pros

Offers a Flexible schedule where you can work from home on relatively easy projects. Projects are often self-chosen. Success is recognized and rewarded.

Cons

There is not consistent, reliable income. The pay is low, and the site suffers many technical issues.

Advice to Management

Increase wages, fix technical errors, offer more guaranteed work to freelancers
