    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Yandex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, reputable public brand

    Cons

    Sky-high goals, low headcount and starvation of hardware resources, which frequently leads to fiasco. Toxic behavior of high-grade managers: spontaneous firings and frequent humiliation of mid-grade employee . All these factors form very unhealthy environment.
