Sr Billing Fraud and Escalations (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – July 11, 2018
The culture and the people at Yahoo drove the success of the workforce. Being a part of the customer care team was the best part of the job. Connecting with users daily and helping to resolve their issues was always our focus.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 18, 2018
Review tickets in job queue and prioritize as necessary. As a desktop support technician I learned using Web based applications for internal business. I never saw much management in my area. Great workplace culture. The hardest part of the job was learning all the web based systems and all the plugins needed to make them work. The most enjoyable was good people, a fun place to work and still be productive.
Subsidized cafeteria and diverse group of team mates.
Many team members left and the new ones would arrive week to week
Network Operation Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 7, 2018
Worked long back, not sure about the current state, i think its sold to verizon now. It was a great American company, i was part of this when it was declining, had developed work processes, and elaborate employee work benefits.
The people and culture made working at Yahoo great!
Senior Problem Analyst (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – April 27, 2018
Great team chemistry and a positive culture created a family style environment. This allowed for more challenges and thirst for knowledge. As a team, we succeeded together, and failed together. I really enjoyed progressing individual's careers and building great relations with everyone there.
People, Challenge, New Technologies, New Opportunities, Food.
Colo Technichian (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – April 12, 2018
A typical day involved checking tickets and completing the tasks that came up. I learned to use some scripts in dos and the wonders of remote software. The management was nice and as long as you respected them they respected you. The people were organized and when we had large projects we worked together. The hard part was getting access passwords to help to admins, I couldn't do all the requests that came in. I enjoyed the quiet when there wasn't mass pages and the steady work request we had coming in.
Steady work and good coworkers
Cold and hot, depending on which side of the server you were on
Tax Compliance Manager (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – April 8, 2018
It was a fun place to work but they focused too much on the fun. My dept. was too worried about perceptions and there always seemed to be some fun event going on. I always wondered when the engineers actually did any work.
Director - Engineering (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – March 14, 2018
Yahoo is a good place to work at with good intelligent people who have a good grasp on technology. All teams deal with large scale and volume that is parallel to other major companies in the same space.
