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.

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

    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.
