Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Yahoo is one of the oldest internet companies in the world. Some of the managers I have seen are in their mid 30 or 40s. Clearly they are the company's legacy.

Woking time is flexible. There will be a mentor for each new employee. Nice and friendly environment.

Cons

The size of the company is shrinking. It gives me a little unsafe feeling.

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

    Pros

    Good salary. Stock has been doing good. Decent work with new technologies.Several great colleagues.

    Cons

    Not against Yahoo but in general working for Yahoo in Champaign is risky. If you loose your job where to go?

    Senior managers are not technical. Senior engineers are the ones who are helping bring in work. There are pyramid building undercurrents in management.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to managers in HQ is to make more changes at top level in Chamapign. Champaign will need more technical leaders to build true center of excellence. Some role changes are a step in the right direction. Apply same standards to senior leaders.
