Approves of CEO

I have been working at Yahoo full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Collaborative, focus on transparency, the energy of a start up, phenomenal CEO who has inverted the pyramid. People that make things happen (i.e. software engineers and those supporting them) are the most valued. Great opportunity to be part of an amazing turnaround story for a company that was written off just over a year ago

Cons

Still some tough decisions ahead.. Focusing on the high growth strategy. Some senior managers still need to go. HRVP is qualified to lead biz dev but doesn't seem to get people stuff. They ought to let her do biz dev by itself, bring in somebody like the guy at Google

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Super-friendly, collaborative, down-to-earth atmosphere. Launching new products everyday. Changing w/ speed. Flat management hierarchy. New talent and energy joining every week. Food is better than Google's.

    Cons

    None that I can think of so far. Might want to cut down the food since folks might get too fat a la early Googlers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to launch beautiful products, innovate, and hire great people! Marissa, you're doin' a great job!

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Momentum, Strategic Focus (albeit to much at once + urgent and important projects) and The People! Although chaotic at times, the work is meaningful and right. The days fly by and are filled with amazing opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many urgent and important priorities in addition to strategic. You must be smart and self driven.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, + ensure alignment on the urgent and important stuff at the top. The Strategic Priorities are good (in terms of alignment), but the operational pieces seem to be at odds at times.
