As Good As It Gets

Editor (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA (US)

ProsIf you must endure corporate culture, Yahoo has one of the best environments in the Bay Area. The main campus mimics the layout of a university, but its maturity doesn't have the patchwork layout of other newer campuses. There's something to be said about having a decent gym, grounds, and people who are cordial to one another.

ConsAs with any company that has been around for a long time, Yahoo takes a while to shed dead weight. Part of that is indicative of a lack of nimbleness, as well as the Silicon Valley fantasy of the flat structure. Besides constantly seeking new talent, there needs to be an equal measure of in-house development of talent. New managers should be required to undergo leadership training, and promotions should not go hand-in-hand with seniority.

Advice to Senior ManagementYahoo should be a content company. Period. It has the power and perhaps the responsibility to reshape the new media landscape.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: fun place, good people to work with, professional work environment. Flexibility to work on… Cons: mostly dis-organized and ad hoc. Some senior management folks don't have a clue and are poor… Advice to Senior Management: Know what employees are doing & what systems are being… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
