A lot of talented smart people but, sadly, no vision for the company at the senior levels.

Director, Product Management (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA (US)

I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people
Competitive salaries + benefits
Yahoo! has a lot of great products - it's a shame that there isn't a tighter/closer integration between them

ConsToo many silos to work through
You spend more time in meetings than doing actual work (work frequently spills into evenings)
Lack of a consolidated vision for the company
Most people work hard, some are hiding in the gaps

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
