Marissa Mayer disappoints me. I think everyone was excited when she came on board as Yahoo CEO, she seemed like a cool CEO, and there was real potential to be different. Then comes the sucker punch. If you want to get rid of deadbeat employees… fire them, lay them off, whatever. But this policy against working from home seems like a step backwards for a high tech company. I guess Yahoo does have a “different” kind of CEO. It’s just a different that employees aren’t going to like.

Once again, Marissa Mayer disappoints me. Yahoo just announced that employees would no longer be permitted to work from home as of June.
This signals a major step backwards for working parents. If a typical male technology CEO made this decision, there would be outrage, of course. But to come from a new mother who is a CEO? It feels like a sucker punch – and hardly believable. Yet there it is.
