I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You work with great people, office culture was very casual and fun. Overall, it's an amazing company to work for.

Cons

Systems and processes are terribly slow and often down. Need better management - it's hard to respect a manager who does not know what you do day-to-day.

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

    Pros

    I've met some of the best people at Yahoo!, many very dedicated , smart, and just good people to be around.

    Cons

    When I was there, it was unfortunately a very silo'd top-heavy organization that had zero / little accountability. There were lots of political fights amongst different teams due to the matrix organizational structure. I would a vast majority of projects that required cross-team collaboration either failed or was diluted so bad in the end, the resulting product/service ultimately failed the end user.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the matrix organization that causes political wrangling. It kills innovation and drive good people out.

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

    Pros

    Hard-working, dedicated people here. Everyone knows that, while we lead in many verticals, we fall behind in others. Employees recognize that and genuinely want to work to better the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Middle management is full of idiots who play favorites, yet somehow stay in C-staff's good graces.

    Advice to Management

    Ask how managers' direct reports feel about their managers and teams. Bottom-up feedback should be taken to get positive changes to happen in the company.
