Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJuly 24, 2017
There are no office politics that I ever encountered there. It's a great place to work with really wonderful people. There are an excellent example of progressives values in the workplace.
Pros
Free Food, Makerspace

Full Stack Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJuly 13, 2017
Very good place to learn and have fun with ping pong. I mean seriously, I liked the work culture at Yahoo and employees are treated really well. Lot of good Engineers who are talented and provide innovative ideas, truly motivated, lots of fun with games and flexible work timings. Except for Job security with recent changes - its really good place to work for. !

Yahoo is a great place to work, great people, great environment. This is true, however if you are a full time employee. Contractors who worked there do not have full benefits or access that others do.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
No benefits or job security as a contractor

HotJobs original hire
Marketing Buyer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 6, 2017
I worked originally at hotjobs and it was acquired by yahoo. The culture was very different because hotjobs was based out of nyc and yahoo silicon valley. It was a warm and welcoming atmosphere but it took a while to assimilate the two companies post acquisition.

Great place to work and learn. Great people, who are genuinely interested in the progression of your character. Not a lot of growth as company is slowly doing worse and worse.

Great place to work, awesome benefits
Customer Care Agent (Current Employee) –  Lockport, NYJune 20, 2017
As with most tech jobs, there's a constant need to stand out from the rest. This typically involves looking for projects to work on that will help improve the company's bottom line. The culture and environment are great, though, as well as the people working there. The perks and benefits are the best I've ever had.

Account Executive (Current Employee) –  YahooJune 19, 2017
Yahoo had an amazing culture and was a great place to work for. At time middle management would make head scratching decisions that would both demoralize the workforce and make no sense.

decent
Director of Photography (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 18, 2017
studios department is essentially a small company that has the backing of a fortune 500 company. best part of the company is the people that you work with, but career development and growth is very limited.
Pros
free lunch

End of an Era
Senior HR Systems Manager (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJune 12, 2017
Soon Yahoo as an independent company will be no more. It was an awesome run but like all things great, they eventually come to an end.

It's a great culture w/ plenty of perks. It will be interesting to see what the immediate future holds for OATH post-acquisition.

Director, Program Management (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAMay 12, 2017
Employees join general work hard . Senior management team is too weak to right the ship. The CEO has great intention to bring the company to the next level but her staff are too weak to implement her vision.
