    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free food (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks...)
    Work environment
    Perks

    Cons

    RSUs are allocated in a questionable way
    Too much paperworks (Goals every quarter / reviews, status reports...)

    Advice to Management

    The way that RSUs are structured makes not much sense. As you move up in title, it becomes harder and harder to exceed expectations. It is much easier to get 'Exceeds' (and the coveted RSUs) as a low level engineer.

    Pros

    depending on your direct managers, your work life balance can be great or not so great

    Advice to Management

    trust your managers, and those you don't, get rid of them, not their teams
