    Pros

    Leading technology, you can work on top of many standard tools. Like to work in a big company with flexible working hours. Also, the pay is still not bad compared to previous companies I worked for.

    Cons

    Bad management, relatively low morale. You got to motivate yourself, and learn how to work under layoff situation. Need to grow their business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    You are allowed to figure out your own ideal balance between work and play. Hours are very flexible, time off is generous, work early or late as you prefer. Many work from home.

    Cons

    Poor direction. The last few years have seen projects released with no followup or maintenance, other projects restarted several times or cancelled close to release. There is no clear plan of attack for Yahoo's comeback. Subsequently we have lost almost all the "big name" web devs who used to be a selling point to incoming engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it. Don't plan and replan and replan, just execute and trust in the results.
