Only Engineering focussed ; not market focussed.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Yahoo full-time for more than a year

ProsVery approachable senior management.
Nothing else I can think of

ConsToo many people managing the show, rather than adding any value at all.
Keeps building products with total disregard to what works does not work in the field
Nothing seems to be going right here.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease do something different, rather than trying to be so inward focussed.
