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

Pros

Scale at yahoo is the biggest reason you would like to be a part of it. Everything you do here has tremendous amount of scale which is hard to find.

Cons

Yahoo is still inits turn around phase. Lack of strong products.

Advice to Management

Personal growth is the area where I feel Yahoo needs to improve.

    I worked at Yahoo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Management was fair.

    Cons

    I hated working at Yahoo! Super political, no sense of why we were doing what we were doing. Lots of executive prancing. I was on a small team whose mission was idiotic---we knew our results would end up in a trash bin somewhere. So I worked 20 hrs a week and nobody even noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Get results oriented. Fire people who do not deliver.
