    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of fantastic benefits such as free food and a work phone. Fantastic colleagues. There is an attempt at transparency with weekly global all hands where confidential info that can be shared is disseminated.

    Cons

    The UK has zero autonomy. All decisions come down the U.S. Mountain. There are also some truly dire, borderline incompetent managers that have been there 10+ years. It's a kiss-arse boys club culture.

    Advice to Management

    For once actually do something with the YEES survey. Create a culture of self-criticism and customer service rather than self-promotion at all costs.

    I worked at Yahoo (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a great place to work, all the usual tech benefits that are trendy these days. Lots of optional to attend company events. Lots of development tools available to staff which can help within and outwith the company.

    Cons

    One of the pros was some clever people work here but there are also people who are iin positions they really shouldn't be. Technical teams and sales are often not on the same page.
