    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pretend that we are not going to be integrated into the rest of Yahoo, just lay out a plan for how we maintain our corporate culture within their environs.

    I have been working at Tumblr full-time

    Pros

    Great perks and work-life balance, and the company culture, socially, is awesome. There is no other company like Tumblr in the industry, and there is a lot of creative energy (though it's not always well-placed). The integrity of the company has maintained post-Yahoo.

    Cons

    There is next to zero mobility. I moved around from manager to manager but was never given any opportunities to move up. It also felt like unless you were an engineer or generating revenue, you didn't matter (e.g. the fact that they've never even formed a marketing team is very telling of their respect for the profession)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on career development and value all aspects of the company equally.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
