Approves of CEO

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

Pros

It's the comeback montage from karate kid and everyone knows it! Exciting time to be contributing. Contagious feeling of being able to make it or break it. Very motivational. Mdogg is even cooler and smarter than her hype. Also perks are obviously solid now.

Cons

There's a lot of self-motivated stuff going to production so things can diverge and collide at times (with respect to code and product). Contagious work ethic can wear you out.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Lot of existing tools quickly build a product
    - Groups are generally fairly autonomous, you can have a say in product direction
    - Perks aren't bad
    - Plenty of smart people haven't left, can still learn quite a bit

    Cons

    - Lots of layoffs (at the time)
    - Misallocation of resources- some groups have more people than they need, others don't have enough.

    Advice to Management

    Free food was a great idea. Huge morale booster.


  2. "Customer Care fosters a culture of bullying and unethical practices"

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great product, a lot of people on the lower rungs who honestly want to do a great job and think about the customer.

    Cons

    There has been so much change and leadership swapping that the mid-level managers who are still there are often the ones that are the least qualified (if they had anything on the ball, they would have gone somewhere else) and the most unethical.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't hard to find them. Look for the ones who have very high turnover and have negative reviews from their teams. I don't know how they talk their way out of it because the data is there.
