Pros

Very approachable senior management.
Nothing else I can think of

Cons

Too many people managing the show, rather than adding any value at all.
Keeps building products with total disregard to what works does not work in the field
Nothing seems to be going right here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please do something different, rather than trying to be so inward focussed.

No opinion of CEO

    Too many changes at the top in the last 5 years, but still got life.

    Pros

    Despite the attrition, the engineers there are smart and passionate. You have the opportunity to learn to solve scalability problems that few companies have to deal with. The recent instability has created career opportunities for those who aggressively seek it.

    Cons

    The revolving door at the executive level in the last 5 years have made it impossible to execute on any strategic plans, because every new CEO or C-Level executive will reorg and disrupt everything that was in motion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the executive shuffle. No single executive, organizational makeup, or development methodology is the magic bullet to solving Yahoo's problems. Let people iterate on product experiences to make them better incrementally instead of trying to do some huge change every year.

    Pros

    You will work with some very smart and bright people.
    Yahoo! experience especially on Hadoop, Pig etc is always a plus.

    Cons

    Leadership is generally direction less.
