Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The snacks were always good. Very often there would be bottomless laffy taffy.

Cons

Everything else. A bunch of dummies. New CEO every 6 months is kind of funny.

Advice to Management

Bottom of the barrel silicon valley management... it's kind of hopeless.

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

    Pros

    A very focused company on the web, yet has many successful products that truly delights many users everyday. Still one of the most successful companies in the internet space.

    Cons

    Silos within the company is widespread. Working with remote teams is harder than it should be. Weak presence in many international markets

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employee well. They are your biggest asset.
