Disapproves of CEO

Pros

There are some smart, talented folks working for Yahoo.
Compared to other tech companies, the work environment is pretty tame, and supportive of work/life balance.

Cons

The lack of company vision or even hope of market success is depressing. When I tell friends in the industry that I work for Yahoo, they offer their condolences.

Advice to Management

Figure out what you want to be when you grow up, before you lose all of your mojo.

    Pros

    Company culture is very open, friendly, respectful of others. Work life balance is great.
    The scale of projects and audience is huge and therefore interesting. You will find that at very few companies.
    Easy to move internally to another job. supportive environment
    It is still on of the very top web company in the world.

    Cons

    Big company structure so things are slow. The organizational structure is clearly not optimal although changing quiet a lot lately (hopefully for the better).
    The company has some difficulties right now but has some good opportunities as well.

    Advice to Management

    Clarify the Org so decisions can be made instead of fostering consensus all the time. A strong leadership makes decisions, and executes.
