    Pros

    Good work-life balance at least before Marissa Mayer. Good salary, even compared with Google. Good perks: food, insurance and other.

    Cons

    Innovation is killed by politics. Especially in EMEA, management is cursed: no one ever succeeded in leading the region. Layoffs are a yearly appointment, bringing stress into the office. In EMEA career opportunities are rare.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Yahoo (London, England) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted via LinkedIn by an in house recruiter. Only had the initial phone interview currently and waiting to hear about any possible next stages. Was asked 20 questions about varied subjects ranging from what various acronyms stood for such as HTTP to when is it appropriate to use a button vs an anchor link. Was asked some more maths type questions with a particular focus on probability. These were considerably more difficult

    Interview Questions
