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

Pros

1. The culture is new and approved with Marissa Mayer on Board
2. They push you to think outside the box
3. There's great collaboration, accountability and reward

Cons

Slow to make decisions. Too many layers for approvals

    I worked at Yahoo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yahoo is the oldest internet company, but one that is learning new tricks now! The recent management change should really help. Employee productivity is not that great but not bad either.

    Cons

    Downsides are that the Yahoo brand is right now not as cool as Google, Facebook etc. but the newt few years could change all of that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in the current direction and things could look a lot better given a decent period of time.

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

    Pros

    First, Yahoo has a great environment and I had really friendly colleagues during my internship, and I learned a lot working and talking with them. The company's culture is quite diverse, and I really enjoyed it. Yahoo also values its employees' health and benefits. A large portion of the food offered in Yahoo are quite healthy, which I believe is important for people working in the IT industry. Also I had a nice work-life balance, that I had the chance to hit the gym and have fun at night at most time. Overall it's a nice place.

    Cons

    Some internal tools in Yahoo are not really handy. I would suggest them use some really great tools in the open source community.
