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

    Pros

    Easily the best culture and benefits of any employer I've ever had. They captured magic in a bottle.

    Cons

    A real lack of direction for what was a once-great brand with so much potential. It was frustrating to see top-down decisions that greatly affected people on the front line -- just a clear lack of understanding of what was really going on.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the weeds and see what your people are really dealing with. Figure out the core competencies and build around those.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent on boarding program so you’re set up to succeed. Managers encouraged a collaborative environment between teams and you’re surrounded with really smart people who are professional.

    Cons

    Lay offs are expected every year and priorities change. Really difficult to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your employees to work on their “brand”.
