The work culture and environment is great and you mostly work with very smart people. You know that what you are developing is going to be used by many people which is not the case in many places.
The senior management does not always seem to have a clear vision or plan on some issues.2

some really smart colleagues, very good compensation and excellent health care package, relax atmosphere, work / life balance
senior management and executives continue to make mistakes after mistakes...they never seem to learn. it's hard to work for a company that you know is not going to go anywhere...1

Interesting international opportunities and the chance to work on some interesting project. Generally a relaxed environment and nice co-workers.
Talent has left the company in droves recently. It's not clear where senior management wants to take the company and what business Yahoo is in. There's very little innovative thinking left at the company and people are less willing to take risks. Corporate mentality has set in.

The best reason for joining Yahoo! is to learn about the essentials of the internet, develop products with really smart people and change the world.
All the career centric middle managers, the bureaucracy and the senior management. The fact that options for the workers have been pulled back in favor of paying the senior management more is also a negative.

Free food and beverages. Newer management additions are bringing intelligent ideas and change for the better.
Senior management in the location has no clue how to run the support business unit in Hillsboro and continuously makes uneducated decisions. Morale is at an all time low and most of the talent has already left the company seeking new opportunities and career advancement. When job opening come up they are almost always filled from the external sources since backfilling positions is close to impossible. The hiring process needs to be completely revamped or internal growth will continue to be a scarce commodity.

Very good work life balance and respect for employees Have the opportunity to address very large audiences around the world Opportunity to develop new products in a large scale
Classic 'ivory tower' behavior by senior management Senior management believes they know it all and do not seek opinions and advice of their people on the ground Lacks discipline across the org1

- Good work and life balance - If you are present in the right org you will see good benefits/bonus
- Senior management is not sure what the next steps should be for the company at large - Need more assistance for ambitious projects.

You get a chance to work in large scale projects, not many other companies can offer.
Decisions of senior management are very intransparent and often seem unreasonable. (Not CEO and board, but the level below)

Competitive salary, high energy, great perks like free food and beverages, weekly activities, popular bands come and play, volleyball and basketball courts, electric car charging stations, gym....
don't expect to work less than 12 hours a day... significant senior management changes when I was there made it feel like it wasn't the right place for me

Very smart, talented and capable employees. Opportunity to learn how to be effective despite a not-so-perfect organization. Laid back atmosphere with plenty of resources. Good work-life balance if you join the right group. Some great managers to learn from and be mentored under.
Terrible, arrogant and incompetent management. Great managers get demoralized and defeated by the pattern of bad management at Yahoo and leave. Lower level employees too become disillusioned by either seeing their work go in vain or a lack of direction from senior management. Mediocre morale and constant feeling of being 'second-rate'. Vague and meaningless mission statement that evokes more confusion than anything else.
