I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fun chill culture, great products, huge audience and great technology.
Lots of opportunities to interact with users and industry peers.
Clear career development paths.
Good benefit.

Cons

Yahoo! started as a technology company and created a lot of great technologies that are the bests in the industry and got adopted by many other peers, however, leadership team does not know how to leverage these great technologies and pursuit media path ...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to technology route and keep innovating.

    Pros

    Employee have a lot of free hand and good for them in terms of technology and problem solving.

    Cons

    They stick a lot with the legacy systems and then don't maintain and grow with the existing technology and enhancements, So after sometime maintaining things becomes a primary work and people start loosing interest.

    Pros

    Great and smart people to work with. Managers are mature and serious enough to give empowerment and trust to direct reports.

    Too much drama with the board and lack of stability at high level executive management .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set one direction and stick to it.
