Last Friday, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer pissed everyone off when she banned her employees from working remotely. Yahoo's working mothers were particularly disgruntled by this change of policy, especially because they don't think that Mayer understands their needs (even though Mayer is a working mother herself).
When Marissa Mayer took over as CEO of Yahoo, she was tasked with turning around a fading Internet giant. Yesterday, she got rid of one of the best perks of a job in the tech world — working from home. In a bid to promote productivity and collaboration between employees, head of Human Resources Jackie Reses outlined why lying in your underwear, balancing your laptop on your growing midsection, while stuffing your face with a mix of M&M's and Cheerios was just not going to cut it anymore as proper workplace etiquette:
Google VP Marissa Mayer has appeared in Vogue and Glamour; she shut down a good portion of San Francisco in order to install a massive Dale Chihuly glass sculpture in her home, where she hosted legendary ragers. Now, after 13 years at Google, she's been tapped as CEO of drab content chum bucket Yahoo.
Marissa Mayer has a knack for summoning helpers, whether it's The Killers to her wedding, a Vogue photographer to her office, or Lady Gaga to her stage. But Google's know-it-all fashionbot outdid herself when she convinced police to block a key San Francisco artery during rush hour so she could upgrade her opulent penthouse.
"Marissa unintentionally encourages promiscuity," managing editor Robert Thomson said. Uh, really? Yes! Since the font used to attribute quotes on this Google News page is too small for Thomson's taste, search chief Mayer is encouraging "digital disloyalty" among readers who are the actual legal property of the Wall Street Journal.
