    Pros

    this is a fine company with a lot of flexibilities on the things you work on. overall good environment with still a lot of good people.

    Cons

    Ban on work from home across the board really sucks. depending on the team, you may suffer from too many managers and layers that make the decision making inefficient

  2. Comfy somewhat well paid job

    Pros

    - Super comfy job with very little pressure
    - Building products on established user base
    - No super strict hours, very relaxed environment
    - There is still a community of strong engineers

    Cons

    - Yearly reviews leave very few chances to advance
    - Culture is pretty bad. Very defeatist attitude.
    - Starting salary was great, but never received a bump and after 2 years my salary went from slightly above average to below average.
    - There is an attitude towards anything built outside of Yahoo! as sub-par. Basically there are a large number of barriers presented if you want to use an outside framework. "Not built here attitude."

    Advice to Management

    - Do a better job at keeping talent.
    - Take more risks, more moon shots.
