No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of different area of technology to work with. Good benefits.

Cons

The review system needs fixing, seems to be a disconnect between what the CEO says and how mid-level management actually performs reviews.

Advice to Management

Ensure mid-level managers are following the directions that were stated by the CEO.

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

    Pros

    Yahoo! offers a lot of great perks. Depending on the team you are in, often you will work with many talents. Yahoo! has its ups and downs and it constantly learns from its mistakes. While it is not a perfect company, this also means that you can make a difference to make Yahoo! a better company.

    Cons

    Just like other companies, you will work with less talented people sometimes. My advice is to coach them and let the management know if that becomes counter-productive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the project visions super-clear; only then the team can create a credible product. Have company's missions be the guide for the team to create your product.


  2. "Wonderful company that treats employee well"
