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

    Approves of CEO

    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!
