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

    Pros

    Worked with some wonderful, great people, truly fantastic products, and the benefits were brilliant. Learned a ton and life was never boring. Honestly hope that the company survives.

    Cons

    There was a lack of people resource so it was never possible to get the job done properly. What Yahoo could do for clients was never effectively packaged up and communicated. There are a few managers that seemed to have taken a Bully 101 course.
