    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and culture, working environment is pretty good

    Cons

    CEO centralised most key decisions leaving a complex matrix organisation unable to be autonomous and make decisions quickly. Yahoo believes being the tortoise will get you there eventually but it's unlikely - Yahoo at times needs to be the Hare, invent fast, test and learn quickly and launch some winning products that are used and loved by consumers at scale. The employee ranking/scoring system sucks. Working from home is frowned upon. Too US-centric/forgets is has an international business

    Advice to Management

    decentralise hiring and product decisions, invest in the international markets, ditch the scoring system for employees, make results the kpi not hours in the office or location
