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

    Pros

    The people. They were clueless about the reality of the company. So after awhile you tend to have alot in common with them - misery.
    Some of the managers can really be encouraging and supportive.
    Transport, free breakfast, lunch etc

    Cons

    The company takes more than it gives.
    Absolutely slow when it comes to growth and development.
    While your direct managers might be great they have no power to stop higher management when they want to screw with you.
    Leadership can be pissy. They can treat you like kids all because they're in a better position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shut it down!
