"I started working here in January 2013. I have grown immensely from when I first walked through the company doors. I enjoy everything I do and the knowledge I have gained. Displaying the willingness to teach people who are willing to learn is amazing."

"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."

"They do not provide external-references, and censor internal employees from doing so to interns as a corporate policy, but they will not tell you this as part of internship recruiting. Also, they will hire out the position you interned for to someone else if you decide to finish school and not pursue a part-time role there while in school. Then by the time you graduate, you're brick-walled with a hiring freeze for the team you were on, while the management you worked with moves on to other parts of the company. Again, they will not tell you this, as part of internship recruiting. Yahoo overall isn't a bad company, and I wanted to continue to work for them, but the internship was an almost total net loss, and it has been very harmful to my career due to corporate policies. And no, I was not fired, and I was told that I did a good job by all those who supervised me."
