    Lots of energy and passion. They were amazing people to work with. The work with the team was very productive and common goal helped to solidify relationships with hring managers.

    frequent changes that often casused uncertainty and angst.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer (Ic4) in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good.
    Work is good , learning is much better than other companies
    CEO is good trying hard but all need to help her to get turnaround( I feel that 'all' is missing)

    Cons

    Direction is lost. Seems like swimming in ocean water and trying to reach the shore.
    Executive management does not know much whats going on ground other than very high level.
    Head count is way high than needed. No one asks for justification why we need so many people.
    Middle management is not higher quality.
    Frequent layoffs in company. Wont recommend if you plan for green card by yahoo inc.

    Advice to Management
