    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and Abilities to learn new skills in a field of Technology.

    Cons

    Downsides would be not being treated fair or giving the same opportunities as your coworker, Management having issues with employees who gets recognition from upper Management.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Ginger Management would be, Give all employee's the equal opportunity to advance and to be fair when it comes to wages and bonuses of your employee's and not just to your employee.. Most important would be honest instead of turning Upper Management against your employee because of your job in securities.

    Pros

    Verizon is acquiring Yahoo for meaningful strategic reasons, and it's good (for the moment) to be near the center of the target they are aiming for. Verizon is a good company with strong leadership. However...

    Cons

    Unfortunately, acquisition and combination with AOL in and of itself accomplishes nothing. In fact, it complicates the problems both companies face independently. Verizon will have to be much more aggressive with the changes it makes than Yahoo leadership has been in order for them to have any chance of changing trajectory. The road has been rocky for a long time, and it's going to continue.

    Advice to Management

    Look much further down the road then Yahoo and AOL have, and be prepared to invest heavily in the talent required to effect meaningful change.

    I worked at Yahoo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They paid me $75/hr which was nice.

    Cons

    I took this position on the condition I would telecommute. Marissa Mayer had ended telecommuting company wide. I had to travel 2 hours each way to Sunnyvale. While the commute was tough, I also found out I was pregnant. My supervisors were not supportive of my pregnancy. In fact, they asked me if I knew I was pregnant when they interviewed me. I was taken back by their words. I could care less about the commute part, but it was how they handled my pregnancy.
