        Former Employee - Media Delivery Coordinator 

        I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Lots of team bonding and great perks

        Cons

        Too many cooks in the kitchen, too many programs to learn because we couldn't get one right. Too many aquisitions. Review system was horrible and led to alot of finger pointing that wasn't needed. Top down management would send orders without knowing what was really going on.
