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 Management

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

    Pros

    Interesting work
    Good Benefits
    Helpful severance package, that definitely looks out for laid off employees

    Cons

    Too many moving parts
    Lots of internal conflict

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully Yahoo can move back to a collaborative environment rather than a constant competition

    Pros

    yahoo is a generous company, a good salary and all. good work/life balance. there are a lot people leaving, so it is not hard to promote faster than usual.

    Cons

    no sense of focus from upper management. you work on something for months/years just to see the project is being killed.
