"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."

"Disposable contractor, employment in constant doubt."

What do you like about working at Yahoo?

"The work was simple and easy to learn. Coworkers and managers were generally helpful and friendly."

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

"None. I was hired after a short phone interview."

What don't you like about working at Yahoo?

"Constant layoffs and scrutiny over job performance. Work was often repetitive. Zero opportunity for growth as contractors."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The contraction of the company and continuous rounds of layoffs couldn't have been predicted, but once it became apparent that there was no chance of promotion to full-time, being honest in that reality is preferable, instead of trying to flirt with maybes that weren't even a possibility."

Technical Intern
in Sunnyvale, CA

"OK. But I think they should give more return offers to their interns. Interns work very hard and they are going to graduate. If there are more opportunities, interns will work hard in the company. I think my supervisor is not bad, but he should provide more opportunities to me to their team. I think overall is just ok."

"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."
