Approves of CEO

I have been working at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

family friendly, recognized and respected brand name for users and as an employer, lots of opportunity

Cons

big boat that is trying to turn around, nice culture is a detriment, still a lot of fat

Advice to Management

decide on a strategy and STICK with it. communicate openly and broadly, and not just downward. empower the ranks who know what is going on, instead of hoarding the plans at the VP level
