I worked at Yahoo

Pros

Very challanging work environment. Fantastic engineers to work with. I've personally learnt a lot for the talented group. Good work life balance.

Cons

Not great senior leadership when I was working. The company tried to copy the innovations/ business models from the market leaders. I wish the senior leadership focused more on innovation.

    I have been working at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    Marissa Mayer is doing great, most of the new exec team is well seasoned and doing good things. Fantastic new tech choices. Overall, the company is on an upswing.

    Cons

    Middle management is still terrible, the new QBR system only allows for top down review, and nothing is confidential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about middle management, also ensure that complaints made to HR are confidential.
