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

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

Pros

Great 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

Cons

Too 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

Recommends
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    tasty cafetaria

    Cons

    Comparatively underpaid
    Dirty politics in some teams
    Too much process
    A little behind in adapting cutting edge analytics

    Increase the pay to avoid people jumping ships
    Crush politics and people going behind the backs of colleagues

    Approves of CEO
