    Morale is like a roller coaster ride, except that it only contains the most exciting part (downhill).

  • Morale is a little shaky now, but I anticipate it getting much better over the next year for a few reasons: we’re wrapping up the major changes, we’re getting past the “double trigger” timeframe where Yahoos laid off would get more robust payouts, and we have some new leadership in that is very promising and is telling the truth. There’s an amazing opportunity to build something special with the large audiences and properties that came together with AOL and Yahoo. The Pay is good, but the equity is not. If you’re a decent media seller you can make quota easy and get big pay for exceeding quota. If you want to build products, there’s great work to be done. Think of all the data and the audience size - not many other opportunities to have an impact like this.

    Stay away. Morale extremely low. Regular layoffs (2-4x/year), constant reorgs. In a cost cutting period now so many benefits/perks are getting cut - travel ban, no more free food/snacks, worse health coverage, etc.

      Most of the things you wrote are either not true or a huge exaggeration.

      We have layoffs 1-2 times a year. Mostly in the failing orgs/products. For instance, mail hasn't been affected by layoffs at all.

      Constant reorg? Afaik we had only one and even that was pretty minimal.

      Travel ban was only for one month and for none customer facing travels.

      No more free food? I guess you forgot the free breakfast and lunch you had today.

      And more and more...

      If you hate the the company so much, then please leave. And don't let the door hit you on the way out.

      Agree on low morale, many reorgs in the sub-orgs and resulting layoffs (of various sizes), serious cost-cutting. People jumping ship.

    Not sure which office or team youre on but in my location there is no free breakfast and they are removing all snacks and drinks - only leaving coffee, tea, bananas, apples. In my org had 3 layoffs last year - many good, hard workers let go so again not sure what team you are on but they arent only getting rid of bottom performers. Another reorg just announced for my org coming in June! 3 VPs fired. Constant change, no direction. You must be from HR (whole other shit storm there ha!) - oh hey Toohey - glad to see youre doing something ;)

    Morale is low. Stay away. Company may have a guru, but still has no idea what it needs to be. Constant layoffs and threats of reorg.

    • Tumblr is one of the worst run parts of the company, I understand your pain. Elsewhere in Oath is not so bad and improving.

      Nope entire company is a giant bag of fail, at least for engineering / anything technical. Sales too from the sounds of recent track record.

    What is the issue with Tumblr? Is it just disorganized or is there more to it? My girlfriend was thinking of applying there

    • Tumblr has had to deal with a fair bit of crap since acquisition. Their monetization wasn’t working well enough, Karp has departed, Marissa provided a lot of protection for Tumblr. Since the Oath acquisition It seems like Tumblr had to work through those issues. My impression is that they are coming out of those challenges and leadership is making Tumblr a priority, so it might be a good time to get on board.
