    I worked at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation. Work was reasonable as a new hire freshly out of university. They have a good mentoring program and good tech talks to gain knowledge of other teams' work.

    Cons

    Sometimes the teams lack direction. Work gets boring or monotonous after a while (depending on the team). It does not seem easy to switch teams.

    Advice to Management

    better management of teams and work to be done
