    Pros

    Company provides everything what a employee wants. Perks, summer of service, bonus, increment, party,events,treats. Lot more fun to work at Yahoo.

    Cons

    Manager partiality on giving recognising the work of team members. Also favour the favourites, give same kind of feedback when after improved the performance. Lot of infernal politics
     But company rocks. Because of poor management good employee effected badly.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognise and treat everyone equally.
