Great people work there

I have been working at Yahoo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Considering all the turmoil that Y! has been goring through in the last years, there are still very smart people working there. It is a very collaborative environment where things can get done quickly without much bureaucracy. The push to mobile first is the right direction and we work on the latest trends, and mobile customer needs

Cons

Lots of re-orgs and turn over (getting better)
Salaries should be more competitive (hopefully Marissa will fix this)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring good talent and staying focus on the most important Y! properties.

    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros

    Initially, there were opportunities for growth in the Small Business Unit ....

    Cons

    Was laid off after Yahoo failed to enter into an advantageous business relationship with Microsoft. Our entire class was hired in September 2009 and laid off three months later in December 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage projections wisely.
