    I have been working at Yahoo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    With Marissa Mayer, free gourmet snacks and food- breakfast, lunch, dinner. Free gym. There are decent engineers and PMs there.

    Cons

    Lacks cross functional trust. Their managers do not promote team work well either. It's now a dog eat dog worldy. Their bonus structure is destructive to morale.

    Advice to Management

    Band together to form a more unified and productive Yahoo. Measurements don't always tell the full story. Middle managers are in dire need of people training.

    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.
