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

Pros

- Diverse and intelligent people to work with.

Cons

- Work life balance beginning to shift toward Google

- Very structured, limiting movement outside the org you are currently aligned with
- Rapid changes without support plans provided make for a frustrating environment
