    I worked at Yahoo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's the perfect place to get knowledge not only about Internet and the business, from content to advertising, from search engine to mail, but also about personnal contribution and organisation. Yahoo! has an exceptionnal continous training program to develop personnal and functionnal skills.

    Furthermore, the company has always been built upon a flat structure where accountability and responsability are equaly distributed. So you always have a priviligeous space to practice your personnal skills, test and learn.

    Finally, Y! is always looking for innovation, user experience and satisfaction. It clearly breathes 2.0 atmosphere.

    Cons

    Highly competitive market.
    Difficult to maintain leadership over so many years.
    Sometimes frustrating to struggle against Goliath.

    I worked at Yahoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many nice people, they try to make employees happy with events and nice cafeteria. Some latitude to contribute and work independently.

    Cons

    Lots of managers who got there by playing games rather than on merit. Fat management. Product roadmaps were silo'd and people didn't work together or help each other. Very disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of half your managers. Clean up your neglected products like Mail. It's degraded.
