    Pros

    Awsome perks and benefits, tough and challenging problems to solve.

    I worked at Yahoo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns get to work directly with the full-time employees and get a real feel of how full timers work.

    Cons

    I think a significant con would be the general lack of innovation from the company. People may not be connected to their products.

    Advice to Management

    Think of products that are significantly different from whatever exists in the market today and innovate instead of building apps that are already dominated by other companies.

    I worked at Yahoo as an intern

    Pros

    The intern experience can vary widely depending on what team you're on. I was lucky enough to be placed in a team with:
    - Really fun people who I'd hang out with outside of work
    - Challenging, meaningful work
        > High user impact
        > Large revenue generator for Yahoo
    - Chill managers who still had high expectations

    In general:
    - Free food breakfast/lunch/dinner
    - Decently fun intern events
    - Gaming PCs
    - As superficial as this sounds, attractive people

    Cons

    - We all know Yahoo's in some kind of mess right now
    - Perks are being slowly cut (food quality, swag, events, etc.)
    - You really only get to know the interns who work on your floor
