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.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People's spirit, employees ability to organize their time schedule and reward based on performance
    Employees are very attached to the company and want it to win
    Salaries and benefits are extremely competitive
    Fantastic user base and brand name, although we need to reboost them
    Solid tech stack although it is being revamped and it can be old fashioned and not so efficient
    Very good relationship with publishers, creating an ecosystem, not trying to destroy them
    Agencies and advertisers expecting Yahoo! to succeed
    Renewed leadership (Executive Management and Board of Directors) since April 2012 with clear vision and direction after years of back-and-forth and hesitations

    Cons

    Too many middle managers creating a complex organization to navigate
    Executive Leadership is good but the level below is hugely criticized
    Advertising systems are not competitive and we can expect changes soon
    Publishing tools must be updated
    Not easy to grow career
    Brand popularity to be refreshed
    Lots of ground to cover in mobile publishing and advertising

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the transformation of Yahoo! into a real tech-based media company
