One of the best companies to work (but before Verizon Acquisition)

Yahoo was one of the best places to work, people called it as their second home due to the best work culture, fun at work, work/life balance and comp/benefits, but everything changed after Verizon Acquisition, they destroyed the Yahoo work culture.

Fun place with free food and free gym

A typical day starts with breakfast and a huddle where you discuss your calendar and bandwidth with your team. Followed by work, meetings, and other activities.

Good

Good, it's good. Perks are good. Work environment is also good. Work pressure depends upon indivisual team where you are assigned to. Hikes are not to be expected much.

Project Yahoo was indeed "Yahoo"

My typical day would start with ensuring all the team members logining on time and start delivering accurately. I would ensure that all the members would take their breaks regularly without affecting the workflow. After lunch we would have a fun activity on the floor that would involve senior managers also. The day would end with a team huddle to discuss any new update received, challenges faced by any team member and planning the leaves ahead. Best part was that everybody was very supportive and that really helped in planning long as well as short leaves. Management was always very supportive, encouraging and motivating team members by providing funds for team outings and timely growth opportunities for all.
