    I worked at Yahoo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are smart and friendly, good pay, free lunch and snakes, doing very interesting project related to Yahoo! advertising.

    Cons

    Champaign is a comfortable and good place to work, but if you prefer big city, it won't offer the things big city have.

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

    Pros

    Yahoo! is a major brand in the IT landscape and it is a great place to be if you are looking for innovative projects. The culture is fun and casual. Free food, lots of benefits. Hours used to be even more flexible, but it is still a great work-life balance company and it is green. The products you work on are impacting life of billions of users around the world. Love it :)

    Cons

    Difficult to move up with career. Very much Sunnyvale centric. Can get frustrated by the pace... many projects we work on end up not going on production or getting killed very fast. But that's the IT industry. Lots of work with teams in China and India late at night.
