Now that Verizon purchased Yahoo and established a new company Oath... Suddenly Oath becomes a giant company with the size of employees over 10000... Anyone knows what they plan to do with Oath?

    There's a yahoo v aol civil war over culture and products. Whose player, whose ad tech, whose CDN etc. It ugly. Lots of people will leave because of RIFs and lots will leave because the environment is toxic. Least fun I have had at work in a very long time

      Pretty simple that TA raised the value of a company to sell it, Marissa devalued a company which has to be bailed out... Hence the sale.

      TA vs Marissa doesnt matter. Roght now a lack of cohesion, appearance of lots of infighting across the board at senior levels and no real attempts to clarify for us "builders". I've been through acquisitions but never have I had three months without a title or clarification of benefits.

  • Acquisitions at this size are messy and take a while to produce real value. Check back in a year. Lots of value to unlock with VZ data. Don't expect impressive consumer side innovation. Expect the classics (yahoo sports, yahoo finance, huffpo, tech crunch, etc) to keep on delivering. DSP is a big part of the company, which is not that interesting. Increasing momentum for Gemini could be very interesting.

    Fuck no. These types of acquisitions never ever go well. It's all about milking the cash cows for as long as possible.
