    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!.

    I worked at Yahoo as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience for interns. Given heavy responsibilities meant for full timers and although learning curve was steep, it resulted in a much richer experience.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment, as mentioned a great place for interns to learn, great working culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None
