Pros

Yahoo hires top quality, the products and science is pretty good.

Cons

The company has no direction and it is a dying company. The projects gets changes from india to sunnyvale so often. There is no sense of ownership. Some of the managers in yahoo so not good with people management.

Advice to Management

Tell the employee this is what you will work on for next 6 months, have some career prospective for people.

    Pros

    It's a good place for the engineer with more than 4 years' experience.

    Cons

    But you cannot expect to work for more than 3 years here, you'll feel boring and no challenge once you get familiar with what you work on.

  2. Great company .. wrong people in the wrong places
