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

Pros

Lots of talented people, very high profile projects to work on. Instead of having to pretend you work to scale, it is very much a daily given that you have to.

Cons

Lots of hierarchy, many middle managers battle another by trying to get lots of people reporting to them, which means you might get tossed around a lot without being able to leave your mark in a project and fully understand it before you move on.

Advice to Management

Use the outcome of hackdays better. They fizz out as a perk after 2 years
