    I have been working at Yahoo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yahoo employ some of the best people in the industry. You will learn a lot from your colleagues and co-workers in your team and others.
    When Yahoo believe in a project, they will put the appropriate resources behind it.
    Excellent package from low-high level. Free breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner at HQ only).

    Cons

    Very high attrition. Lack of direction behind one particular product. Nobody will ever understand exactly what your company does when you say you work at Yahoo.

    Advice to Management

    Alter the QPR process. It's damaging for team morale, especially when managers are forced to down-rate their reports.
