Great Benefits with expected Slavery.
Accountant II (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 12, 2014
This company makes a great offer, high compensation including free food, cellphone and gym reimbursements etc. The catch is that you are expected to work all hours of the day and give and give until you can't give anything else. There is no work/life balance and the boss's do not care that you have a family. You are required to compete against ALL of your peers which causes a tense and stressful working environment. Shortened cubicles are claimed to "open up teams to working together" and you still end up sitting next to people who will not work with nor help you on anything. This is truely the worst environment I have ever worked in. I am currently searching for another company to change to in order get my work/life balance that I miss so much.
Pros
free food, cellphones, drinking on the job.
Cons
long hours, supervisory that monkeys could do a better job at.

great but not great
Senior Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 27, 2013
the company at one point had great leaders. as those leaders left, incompetent/egotistical leaders got big roles. those leaders are still lurking and have huge ego's. sadly till the leadership is cleaned up company will have hard time.

A Fun and Well Paid Helpdesk
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Omaha NEDecember 20, 2013
The culture of Yahoo! is amazing, the environment is highly tailored to the geek chic, with colorful interiors, fun and engaging co-workers, annual events, and a focus on the individual. Pay is amazing at Yahoo! Small Business for the work done. That said it is a call center which means that the work can be non-stop and there are tight metrics to be held to in regards to average length of call, and customer satisfaction. Performance is bonus driven, and bonuses are generous for quality work.
Pros
fun work environment, quarterly bonuses, well paid
Cons
clockwatching, tight metrics, micromanagement.

Fun place to be a part of! Strong technical environment
Intern (Former Employee) –  sunnyvale, CaliforniaDecember 16, 2013
A typical day at work involves a lot of research and design scenarios to create an application. Management is light so the onus lies on you to resolve several areas for end products. Work culture is awesome with several perks.

Fair Salary, job security is poor
MEDIA DELIVERY MANAGER (Former Employee) –  New YorkNovember 6, 2013
Yahoo is a great company to work for. The salary is fair, the poeple and management are great as well. With the company not doing so well over the last few years, their seems to be a rotating lay-off. I've seen full departments get laid off. Before accepting a offer here, be sure your contract as a stipulation to protect you form lay-offs.
Pros
cool company and learning experience
Cons
frequent lay-offs

It is a very friendly work atmosphere and everyone is very helpful. I strongly suggest students interning here as they can learn about every detail should pay attention to as a good UX designer. The manager will be very helpful on your development.

Industry leader in online entertainment coverage
General Manager, Movies and Kids (Former Employee) –  Santa MonicaSeptember 3, 2013
Pioneered relationships between the movie studios and the internet portal, leading the way in creating new editorial and marketing experiences for audiences and advertisers, strategies now copied and considered standard across the internet medium.
My purview stretched across all areas including editorial, marketing, sales, pr and video production.
As a traditional Silicon Valley tech company burdened by perpetual executive turn over at the highest level, there was reluctance to embrace the inherent sexiness and differentiating business prospects of being a leading destination and partner in the Entertainment space.
As a result, however, I did benefit from much autonomy to grow not just the presence of the movie industry online but also to push the boundaries of my own role which kept my experience fresh and exciting.

Sr. Director, B2B Marketing (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAAugust 2, 2013
Yahoo! was a great place to work. There is lots of transition and turmoil, but the company is focused on growth and moving with speed on product development. The mission of Yahoo! is to make Yahoo! a place that consumers go on a daily basis for all their informational needs.
Pros
free lunches, smart people
Cons
lots of turmoil and transition
