I love my job

Just thought I’d reassure everyone that I still love my job at Yahoo!. Why am I saying this? Because it seems like everytime I turn around, someone is asking if I regret choosing Yahoo! over Google. Yes, the Yahoo! stock has taken a beating lately and Google successfully bought YouTube, but does that make working at Yahoo! any less exciting? No way.

I love my job at Yahoo!, love the people I work with, love the company. Is it perfect? Of course not, no job ever is. But I’ve never thought I made the wrong choice. And would I recommend Yahoo! to others? Of course I would. There’s so much cool stuff going on, I constantly feel lucky to be surrounded by such smart, talented people. I feel like I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been here. I have no doubt that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now. Yodelling.

    Sounds quite interesting. Seems to be a nice place to work. Following other reports it is cool that the smart and talented people work for both, Google and Yahoo. They seem to share them. ;)

    yea, choosing google may have been the easy way out. The new yahoo mail beta rocks!

    It can't be all that great. I'm not there! ;)

    Right on.

    Good to hear you are enjoying your new job. Hopefully it isn't getting in the way of the new book you've been telling us about though.

    Nicholas: It's great to see that you get your job satisfaction from some other source than the value of the company stock and/or your options. Too bad that it sounds like so many people around you would assume otherwise.

  7. Dustin Diaz

    Here here. Agreed. It's a good place to be.

  8. Nicholas C. Zakas

    Kevin - don't worry, I'm still feverishly pounding away that new book. Yes, probably rapidly approaching burnout, but that's what the holidays are for: to relax and recharge!

    Glad to see that you talk the same way in person that you do on your blog. Keep it up man.
