    I worked at Yahoo full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were great. Good group of people, and some of them were very talented at what they do. Free food was very yummy.

    Cons

    Ridiculous corporate bureaucracy. For a while it seemed like we had a new CEO every 6 months. Of course, each CEO wanted us to maintain LASER FOCUS on our goals. These goals were rarely actually defined and were always short-lived. Also, don't get me started on the annual review process.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of QPR. You are punishing people that simply do good work and rewarding glory hounds.
