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

Pros

Provides awesome perks. Good environment overall. Intelligent colleagues to work with. Appreciable employee recognition. Flexibility to change teams internally and work on different projects. Constant encouragement to get better. Yahoo has come a long way from the company that it used to be 2 years ago. Lots of things have changed, for the good :)

Cons

Complications and latencies of a big company. Need to put in long hours to meet aggressive deadlines.

Advice to Management

Keep up the recent good work! There is potential to get better.

    Pros

    Marissa Mayer
    Great engineering talent
    Opportunities to work on challenging problems

    Cons

    Direction and management vision. Great engineering talent that was not fully utilized to make the company successful. Marissa Mayer definitely improved the situation and leading in right direction.

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

    Pros

    Friendly, very transparent culture. Lots of smart people, lots of people to ask for help. All-hands meetings every Friday help build culture and positive attitude. Striving for new and improved everything.

    Cons

    Lots of management, still stuck in some old ways (kind of a given for a company that's been around so long)
