    Pros

    Yahoo is an awesome work place who really care about their people and grow them on job via appropriate L & D program. Yahoo's reward and recognition system is phenomenal. And if you are smart, hard worker and putting the best effort, you don't need ask for your reward. It is well recognised.

    It is one of the best technology company and pool of talent.

    Cons

    I can't think of one cons for this org.

    Pros

    Lot of smart people to work with, too good in using latest technologies.

    Cons

    Very less salary compare to market, based on rating only layoff is possible no promotion or hike is considered on rating. Layoffs have not been consistent in performance. Lot of uncertainty at work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either scrap the rating system or if want to consider then consider it properly not only for layoffs.
