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

Pros

Hired the best and the brightest but with little to no oversight. Very little direction.

Cons

Lack of overall mission led to decreased morale and bad business decisions, rapidly falling behind.

Advice to Management

My advice is out of date.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Work: Learn a lot. Get to work with smart people. Solve complex problems at scale.
    Perks: Free food, free iphone, free coffee bar, free vending machines, 16GB Retina with 512 GB SSD.

    Cons

    Even if you've contributed a tremendous amount, if you're not in the top 20% you get almost no salary increase. This has happened two years in a row.

    They also took away the 24 month ESPP plan and replaced it with a new 3 month one. That perk alone was worth $15k a year for me at the current stock price.

    Also no RSUs after you join. Unless you're special.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retention and offer RSUs yearly.
