    I worked at Yahoo

    Pros

    Very challanging work environment. Fantastic engineers to work with. I've personally learnt a lot for the talented group. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Not great senior leadership when I was working. The company tried to copy the innovations/ business models from the market leaders. I wish the senior leadership focused more on innovation.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work with strong culture irrespective of the location one works in. The people are pretty smart and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The management direction until the now has not been that great. It remains to be seen what will happen with the new CEO at the helm. Many projects get canned after a lot of investment which is a loss both to the company and its people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparent communication and clear strategy/goals is required to move the company forward.
