Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Well know brand, strong impact on mainstream media. Extremely smart engineering team, and very ethnically diverse. Higher than average compensation.

Cons

Yahoo! is often spoken of in the shadow of Google - even though Yahoo! is a prime Internet portal. Also, management is not always transparent, for e.g., with the recent Microsoft-yahoo deal.

Advice to Management

Talk to your soldiers: i.e., the engineers before making big-time mergers/deals. It is insufficient to simply loop in upper management.

    The environment can be upbeat, sometimes, and the facilities are nice(ish). Open access to management when needed. Flexible scheduling and travel.

    Cons

    Big company is easy to get lost in the folds. Difficult to get recognition if you aren't the most outstanding person around. Customer focus is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employees, and provide recognition for a job well done. Don't lose sight of customer needs and desires.
