"Yahoo! was a great place to work until they started to get obsessed with quarterly reviews. They are so focused on results-oriented metrics and hiring younger and younger people that they're letting a lot of good, experienced, talented people go. There is no focus, and dwindling morale among the employees."

"I've worked for Yahoo for more than 4 years. The glass ceiling is very clear for a non-headquarters office like Burbank. Benefits are excellent and culture is strong. If you drink the cool aid, you'll have a great time and learn a lot. If you see past the purple, you'll recognize some of the inefficiencies of working there."

Yahoo Employee

"I enjoyed my time at the company. The education they provided to do the job was top notch and should be a model in order to train your workers about your products. The people at the company made moving really difficult, but the lack of advancement and opportunities becomes telling when you see what's capable outside of this environment."

Senior Systems Analyst

"I worked for Yahoo for the past 14 years. Throughout this time I watched the company evolve into a much more fragmented corporation. The perks of the new CEO including free food, iPhones and new laptops were great but did not offset the constant threat of layoffs or dismissals by arbitrary rules. It is very much a good old boy network due to the stacked ranking rating system. If you are on a very high performing team, watch out. One of you must be ranked lower if another is ranked up."
