    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Super comfy job with very little pressure
    - Building products on established user base
    - No super strict hours, very relaxed environment
    - There is still a community of strong engineers

    Cons

    - Yearly reviews leave very few chances to advance
    - Culture is pretty bad. Very defeatist attitude.
    - Starting salary was great, but never received a bump and after 2 years my salary went from slightly above average to below average.
    - There is an attitude towards anything built outside of Yahoo! as sub-par. Basically there are a large number of barriers presented if you want to use an outside framework. "Not built here attitude."

    Advice to Management

    - Do a better job at keeping talent.
    - Take more risks, more moon shots.
