      Pros

      Great People work here, friendly and dedicated to their jobs. Pay is fair enough. Vacation hours are plentiful. Free food in the cafeteria. Mobile phone for employee and discounts on Verizon service for employee and immediate family.

      Cons

      No one knows who does what. Documentation is lacking for a lot of jobs. Upper management that is a holdover from the pre-buyout days tends to be competitive to the point of betrail. The culture is ridiculously left-leaning and as such tends to have a bias against males, and the diversity hires are not always the best choice for the job and often are a detriment to the team. Not enough hours in the work-day to complete all tasks, most nights are spent with a couple of hours in my home office working on a task of some sort.

      Pros

      The only good thing I can say about this company is that you are given a lot perks in terms of free food and monthly events, there are also a few real, quality people the rest are unprofessional and petty.

      Cons

      One of the biggest downsides of working at Yahoo is that as a female your opinions are not respected. The managers are young and inexperienced men who do not equally value all team members. Instead of being an innovative and forward moving company, Yahoo is stuck in the past. They also pay women significantly less than men for having the same job title and experience. Upper management and management make you believe that they want you to success and grow and include women in the process but this is all for show and to get you to accept the role.

      No contractor conversion

      Pros

      Free lunch, good pay, there are some truly good people ... cons sadly outweigh the pros

      Cons

      - no conversion of contractors who are valuable members of the team. - no rewards for good work, the team is mostly NY based, if you are in the LA office you are often forgotten about - upper management picks favorites and if you are not one of them... good luck - lots of layoffs (multiple acquisitions in 2 years -- Oath, then Verizon) - no benefits or 401k if you are a contractor - no one really feels safe, lots of people are constantly looking for new jobs Some else wrote "after the acquisition, Yahoo became just another corporate cold environment" -- they are right
