I want to take a time out and give props to Yahoo! The dot-com boom and bust came and went, but the company has held steady to its cultural roots. Here are some of the perks that the employees still enjoy: free specialty coffee stands throughout campus–as good as Starbucks for free; game rooms with foosball tables, pool tables, and air hockey–all free; an awesome cafeteria called Eat at URLs that boasts an awesome variety of food, great prices, and free copies of the Wall Street Journal; hit movies are regularly screened on campus–today it’s Chicago; and the list goes on and on, not to mention the permanent name prestige on the resume. It’s an informal atmosphere that makes you feel warm and fuzzy, like you are still safely nestled within the cozy Internet Bubble. Yet with all of these things the company is still making a quarter million dollars per quarter. The Internet legend does indeed continue, at least here anyway.
