Yahoo, she’s a mom again! Marissa Mayer, the occasional feminist hero and failed savior of Yahoo, gave birth to twins on Thursday. After working through her pregnancy, Mayer plans on only taking off two weeks before heading back to the … More
Have you heard? Tumblr belongs to Yahoo! now. No one knows what that means, but there has been plenty of speculation about what Yahoo — and by extension, Marissa Mayer — have planned for the brainchild of twenty-something David Karp. More
Marissa Mayer seems to be making an effort at Yahoo! to take into account that not everyone is a genius workaholic. She is making changes at the company that show compassion for families, and this will not only benefits her employees but the welfare of the company as well. More
We love her. We hate her. We love her. We hate her.
Since accepting the position as Yahoo CEO, Marissa Mayer has not stopped making waves. We loved her as a strong, powerful, female CEO of a big, important company … then some were irked when she took a two-week maternity leave after giving birth to her first child. More
Earlier this week, we reported that Yahoo is now giving new mothers 16 weeks off, new fathers, 8. More
In February, Yahoo’s new CEO Marissa Mayer made headlines when she revoked her employees’ privilege to work from home. She also kicked off a national conversation about whether working from home makes employees more productive, or whether it makes them less innovative, and whether a male CEO would have gotten as much flak for making the same decision. But Mayer herself has remained silent on the issue since she issued the controversial memo — until now. More
Last fall, a source close to Yahoo told us that Facebook was working on an advertising product that “kills us.” More

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s decision to ban telecommunicating sparked a national debate over work-life balance (some of it taking place on this very site), yet one Yahoo employee is going to extreme lengths — thousands of miles of length, to be exact — to fulfill Mayer’s wish of having “all hands on deck.” Jacqueline Reses, Yahoo!’s Executive Vice President of People and Development, commutes 6,000 miles a week to the office. (And here I was grumbling about how slow the N train is…) More
This is not the best week for Marissa Mayer. After banning working from home at Yahoo, Marissa has now installed a nursery in her office. Normally, this wouldn’t be a big deal — I actually think it’s great that she’s bringing her son to work. However, she’s also making an exception for herself. I don’t think any of the other employees at Yahoo are allowed to have cribs next to their desks. More
One small step for a woman, one giant leap backward for womankind: CEO Marissa Mayer is revoking all existing work-from-home arrangements at Yahoo. According to a report from All Things D, all employees will now be required to stay in the office, even if they have existing arrangements allowing them to work from home.
A couple of weeks ago, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer promoted SVP of advertising and data platforms, Scott Burke. Mayer put Burke in charge of all advertising technology at Yahoo. She also elevated him to her senior staff, where he will report directly to her.
