Approves of CEO

Pros

The work culture is awesome and very friendly. People are very approachable. The best part is the level of access provided to the core part of the company including their network, design etc.

Cons

I am not sure about other offices of Yahoo but the one in Richardson does not have a cafeteria and that is a pain in the butt. I think they should also provide a pass to use the public transport.

Advice to Management

Keep the good on! Interns can really contribute new ideas and designs to pump up the existing technologies for the better of the company.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is possible to separate your personal and professional life. Awesome engineers always willing to help and contribute. Nice campus.

    Cons

    Several reorgs and layoffs yearly making immigrant life (those requesting a green card to stay) miserable. Reactive talent retention and terrible compensation adjustment policy, one got to announce s/he is leaving in order to get a decent $.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating engineers as linear people. Everyone is different and it is not fair to adjust compensation equally when some are clearly performing better than others. Stop reorgs and layoffs


  2. "Great place to work"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good people and smart people

    Cons

    senior management appears risk adverse. Difficult to steer a larger company quickly.

    Advice to Management

    If Yahoo is to remain a growth company new businesses will need to be aquired or cultivated from within. When growing from within think long term and don't grow a group 300% and expect it to produce game changing revenue immediately.
