"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 over 6 years and found Yahoo has very strong in infrastructure built by old Yahoos but current Yahoo management is not strong enough in people management skill and understanding. This poor middle management destroying Yahoo culture and also they do not know how to improve people skill to get optimum output with innovation."

"The world's largest start up, Yahoo is a great place to get experience. They have excellent benefits and with the new CEO, Yahoo is now a fast moving company with many high priorities. The team here is super talented and gets great work done quickly."

"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."

Account Manager

What do you like about working at Yahoo?

"My job is interesting and challenging. I work with a great group of peers. Yahoo provides excellent benefits (medical, vacation time etc.). Our offices are in a nice area and easily reachable by transit. The hours are in line with the position. Not too many late nights or weekends."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be very clear in the role you are interviewing for. Not uncommon to hire for one position and change your role once hired."

What don't you like about working at Yahoo?

"My manager is not a manager. They do not provide feedback or mentoring. The feedback given is always negative and demeaning. VERY passive aggressive! Top management does not share their goals/vision for the company. There doesn't seem to be no leadership."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"More communication with the employees. Sharing of goals/vision. Address staffing issues - constant stream of resignations. It's not that we are so talented that people poach our employees - it's your employees are unhappy."

"Yahoo! Finance still has a lot of things to work on but overall, it's a pretty good place to learn and grow. The problem comes from parent company Verizon Media."

"Yahoo's reputation of trouble keeping good employees is well earned. In my case, I had a manager with poor communication skills and gave more attention to her vacations and work from home than getting the project completed."
