    Pros

    Yandex Labs used to have talented people

    Cons

    Yandex is a Moscow company. Everything that is not invented in Moscow or directed by Moscow is rejected. As result all talented people have left. The office in Palo Alto would be closed years ago, if Borkovski wasn't Volozh personal friend. At the same time Borkovski is disliked by many key people in Moscow.
