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

Pros

Fun chill culture, great products, huge audience and great technology.
Lots of opportunities to interact with users and industry peers.
Clear career development paths.
Good benefit.

Cons

Yahoo! started as a technology company and created a lot of great technologies that are the bests in the industry and got adopted by many other peers, however, leadership team does not know how to leverage these great technologies and pursuit media path ...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to technology route and keep innovating.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good balance of personal / work life. With the recent layoffs, management is more sensitive to needs of the team, and is willing to make changes/adjustments necessary to prevent further departures. Even before layoffs, managers were very open and adaptable to the team.

    Cons

    Food is terrible, leadership can be lacking at times.
