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.

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 worked at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was very unhappy, so I cannot say I had any positive experiences. I was placed in an odd team, this could have contributed to it.

    Cons

    Feudal system feel to the company, the VPs were like dukes and the CEO the Queen. All were unapproachable. The company wasn't doing well and I watched several rounds of layoffs. The commute was long and tedious and the job I had was very unsatisfying. I've moved on from the experience and the culture has probably improved. But when I was there it was a difficult place to work.
