    Pros

    Leading technology, you can work on top of many standard tools. Like to work in a big company with flexible working hours. Also, the pay is still not bad compared to previous companies I worked for.

    Cons

    Bad management, relatively low morale. You got to motivate yourself, and learn how to work under layoff situation. Need to grow their business.

    Pros

    Yahoo treats it's employees with an enormous amount of respect and goes out of its way to try to do what's right for its employees. The positive values and culture within the company are a reflection of the values of it's co-founders.

    Cons

    The worst part about working at Yahoo! is it's poor senior management, lack of vision, and the power struggles that happen between internal groups due to the silos within the company. These elements take a significant toll on employees and contributes to the low morale and frustration within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what Yahoo!'s unique assets and strengths are and focus on building products based on that foundation. Cut everything else that is a distraction from that. Focus on building products based on what users want, not on what advertisers want.
