Sr. Editor (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 30, 2017
Yahoo Music was a fun, fast-paced work environment with smart, dedicated people who worked well together. The company had several partnerships that allowed staff to collaborate on projects with other major entertainment and digital companies.

Sales/Collections (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 23, 2017
Over all it is a good company very friendly and nice staff. Im just looking for advancement with in the company, to excel to the next level and its not up for option. We would always get spliffs and extra ways to earn money. I did not feel secure all the way because of the business. The job did not have benefits which is a plus to have a better future for myself and my kids.
Fun workplace with the ability to learn many different production rolls
Web Video Producer, (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – December 10, 2016
Each day could be different than the last at Yahoo. One day you are in sports production and the next you could be on a plane to DC intv. the president. You're able to learn other positions. Management is extremely fair and treat you like family. Co-workers are the best in the industry. Everyone gets along. Hardest part of the job is not knowing if you'll have it in 6 months. Most enjoyable part is all the perks of a full studio and connection to all the major events. News, Tech, Sports or what ever.

They try and pretend they are different, but it's just like working in any other call center environment. It's all about how short your calls are, how many you take, and how well you can stick to a script.
The benefits are great, if you have to be stuck doing call center work.
Sr. Editor (Former Employee) – Santa Monica – September 6, 2016
A typical day included news gathering, writing, editing, building site, working with freelance staff, collaborating with other departments, working with content partners. The most enjoyable part about the job was working with great people and getting to interview highly respected music stars.
budget/forecst and vendor management (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – August 21, 2016
dealing with invoices and budget issues plus handling vendors and contracts, people attitude at Yahoo that I worked with on issues. lots of companies to deal with because Yahoo purchase 28 companies in one year with no process in place.
Manager (Current Employee) – California – July 25, 2016
I've worked at Yahoo for my entire professional career. I've seen the company grow from a fun start-up to a full fledged company.
Yahoo has worked to be a leader in the industry; however, there were many years where Yahoo did not provide a clear strategy externally. This same lack of focus was evident internally as well, which impacted overall morale.
The people at Yahoo are amazing, and the atmosphere is one of collaboration and involvement. Yahoo does a great job in ensuring inclusiveness of all people, and the overall awareness of social issues and the world is encouraging.
Reporter (Current Employee) – Qualcomm Stadium, CA – July 13, 2016
I get a media pass at San Diego Charger games and report over live radio what is and has happened in the game. I have learned how be a more productive speaker and getting to the exact key points of what is going in the game as I only have 1 minute to describe everything. getting everything summarized in a minute is the hardest part.
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.
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – July 5, 2016
