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.

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.
