    Pros

    Friendly, vibrant and collaborative environment, competitive salary and perks, good learning opportunities for interns,

    Cons

    Currently Yahoo is in an unstable situation and after acquisition by Verizon it's not clear how are the future strategies and outlook for company

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, excellent people you work with, great technology, food and drinks (breakfast and lunch served), you can be YOURSELF (no dress code). From what I can tell, a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    A little unorganized during first couple days but your awesome coworkers help you if you just ask for help. Media isn't the best but the new Verizon deal means a lot of opportunity for the business (from what I can see and hear).

    Advice to Management

    Keep a positive attitude and be honest with the employees a integration plans are finalized. This will help the morale of the organization.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move around within the company. Work life balance. Good perks. Free food.

    Cons

    Negative media. Quarterly review system. Hiring is very difficult and it can be hard to get the right people in the right jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and don't assume that if they are not talking that everything is okay. Get rid of the quarterly review system that hurts team work and makes high performers leave.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Yahoo has some of the most brilliant people you will ever work with on staff. Just being in the office daily is a serious learning experience from which you'll reap benefits for a long time.

    Cons

    Tasks can be of complex difficulty, of little impact, and with little to no guidance. It is difficult to keep focus, especially when priority is given to California teams.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate! Get back to what Yahoo did so well in the past.

    I worked at Yahoo (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a very siloed position within the office as there are no other Market Researchers. However, other locations offer support. The office is 98% Latin and can offer the same culture.

    Cons

    The leadership does not offer support and you can only look to seeking out support from NYC or other countries. It's best to be Latin to fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Have an idea of what success looks like prior to performance reviews.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture and very smart people. I loved the environment, it's one if not the best company I worked for in terms of happiness in the workplace. There is good communication and collaboration across teams.

    Cons

    The future of the company is not well defined, there is a lack of direction, and a feeling of uncertainty given the recent events.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be as open as possible in revealing what's known about the company future. Transparence and clarity on what's going to happen should be a priority.
