    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strives for greatness and turn-around. Dynamic sector brings a lot of movement and changes.
    Awesome CEO who does the right thing to motivate people and crowdsource ideas
    Some good products which are getting better. Nice mobile products.
    People are mostly smart, nice and collaborative.
    Perks are great.

    Cons

    Ad tech stack (i.e. the money making machine) is well behind the market, which is a shame for a technological company that has strong technical ressources.
    Tough competitive landscape.
    Some managers have been there for too long and do not have the fresh perspective or technical competency to bring proper changes. Or on the contrary, the c-suite is pushing down the wrong focus with poor knowledge of what is happening in the field and how markets differ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yahoo sucks for a lot of people, especially young tech-aware internet-savvy users but at the same time a lot of people like it or love it. Like former CEO Bartz said "actualy most people outside the east and west coast love the product". This is just how things are and is relatively unique dichotomy. In that regards, it feels sometime that current management does not really understand the user base and does not manage the company to its strengths, i.e. the company has the best (ad) performing audience amongst all other big online media players, loyal as well because adverse to change, not eager to try disruptively new things but open to small new explorations of what the internet has to offer, wishing to stay in a technological confort zone, open and receptive to ads if not fooled by poor quality campaigns and shady advertisers. Trying to be like Google and frustrating its older and loyal users, the company has focused on changing products drastically and bringing new users before focusing on nurturing the existing base and bringing up the performance of their ad inventory. Increasing yield by 10% is much easier then increasing user base by 10%...at least by getting modern ad tech. This was typicaly exemplified by mail product manager claiming "you'd need to kick the users in the balls to have them leave the platform" (see business insider article) and by the fact that focus has been openly on increasing user base via better product rather then improving the outdated ad tech and ad user experience. Management is almost too smart and too silicon valleyish, googler point-of-view has some benefits in terms of bringing technological advances but does not seem in phase with the core of the product. So all-in-all my advice is: focus on getting best in-class ad tech products, hire a non-tech FMCG product manager from the south/midwest, understand how 30+ year old people use the internet outside of San Francisco, open a small office in Africa and get your big user growth, next big innovation and long-term perspective from there (as well as India/SEA), build your new young audiences on other platform / brand (e.g. Tumblr) while nurturing your current users.
