Today is my last day @Yahoo!. It is my first ever short stay in any company that I worked so far, but I do not regret for leaving.
I decided to leave two months back but as I had a vacation in the middle (India trip), I have to postpone till am back. During my stay at Yahoo! I
learned enough from rest of the MySQL geeks but I miss the whole geek community, which I doubt any company will have such a great MySQL folks.
Personally what I learned from Yahoo! is that, I needed to be in a company and/or team; where the management knows what the engineers actually do and capable of delivering rather than what was presented by managers itself from down the layers.
Anyway, I have multiple offers to continue as DB internals developer along with DB architect positions; but I will evaluate carefully in the next few days before I make up my mind as opposed to what I did in my last job search.
