I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Yahoo hires top quality, the products and science is pretty good.

Cons

The company has no direction and it is a dying company. The projects gets changes from india to sunnyvale so often. There is no sense of ownership. Some of the managers in yahoo so not good with people management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell the employee this is what you will work on for next 6 months, have some career prospective for people.
