    Pros

    Great people. Large scale engineering.

    Cons

    Middle mgmt was weak. Lots of tech debt and too many teams caused friction and lack of innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tech Debt is bringing down engineering at Y!. Phase out "old" systems that the original authors aren't willing to support. Move to Open Source solutions and contribute back. This will allow you to find engineers motivated to work for Y!.
