    Pros

    The benefits, smart work force and the potential to shape how information will be delivered in the 24th century.

    Cons

    Very large company which means it is difficult to balance competitive interests and being in a good position means uncertainty and new pioneering field.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on marketing and more on integrity and have a more integrated dialogue with real people. Focus on taking advantage of vulnerability gap right now in how necessary information is being consumed by the world.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. And Yahoo is a great name to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Horrible culture. A lot of incompetent people that rose quickly in the early days hold management positions and keep making bad decisions. Business units are too siloed. Serious inability to cooperate between business units and/or functions with a unit. Yahoo! Hotjobs is the absolute worst business unit. All management there are buddies & they are all incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house (which I think they are doing). Listen to customers. i know deal with Yahoo everyday and there isn't a single person in the media industry that will tell you that Yahoo is easy to deal with. They are horrendous. Make customer service and sytems designed for customers the focus.
