Account Management Team Lead (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – July 11, 2016
Good Place to Work, great culture, waning market share. Focus on collaboration and team environment. Lots of perks, such as beer, offsites, games, etc. A little tense right now due to business conditions and the macro environment.
Great corporation, need to work the management of day to day operations.
Data Center Engineer Infrastructure II (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – December 31, 2015
I was excited to have the chance to work for a high profile company such as Yahoo but I found the management to be poor and chaotic at times.....very disappointing , great IT staff. Impressive facility.
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – May 23, 2012
Yahoo is a fantastic place to work for many reasons. The company has a tech culture (read: ping pong tables, coffee bars, open office environment), excellent compensation/benefits packages and a great focus on work/life balance. We struggle with executive leadership and opportunities to advance within the same office/market.
The co-workers are all excellent, as is the learning environment.
It is challenging to work in a company that has lost some of its edge that is slow to market in an otherwise quick to move industry.
great people, great products, great compensation
challenging business environment, slow to adapt, leadership issues.
If you can handle an ever changing environment and think fast on your feet, you will like Yahoo!
Sr. Manager, Insights (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – July 25, 2012
Yahoo! has resources because they are a big company which makes it much easier to do excellent work. You have the support and the tools to get what you need done.
The issue with Yahoo! is management constantly changes therefore all the hard work you have done previous years is lost and there is no room for advancement.
The best part about working at Yahoo! was working with other very smart people who had years of experience in the industry however in recent years they hired too many people with little digital experience which is one of the reasons I think they have not been leading in the industry.
balanced life, smart people, good benefits
inconsistent management, not secure place to work, strategy always changed
Great place to work when not laying off 42% of company.
SENIOR COLLABORATIVE MEDIA ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – March 23, 2016
Was a fantastic workplace for the first 3 years. The last year has been very depressing and seeing half the company get laid off was very disheartening. All so board members could take home a fatter paycheck.
Yahoo offers a number of great benefits including a paid gym membership, free healthcare, a phone and phone plan, also lunch and snacks everyday
Information Technology Care Agent III (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – May 28, 2015
Yahoo offers many great benefits to full time employees such as gym memberships, insurance, phones and phone plans and also free food and drinks during our shift. It is a very casual relaxed type of work environment. The down side can be working odd hours, weekends and holidays. We are open 24 hours 7 days a week which can make it difficult to have time for family and outside activities depending on your shift. It is hard to advance unless you consider relocation.
Benefits such as free food, gym membership and phone plans. Health insurance and stock options are also a pro
Shift and shift bidding. Another down side is we work weekends
