I did, however, appreciate that Yahoo hired Ms. Mayer even though she was pregnant. Most employers run the other way from pregnant women. So good for Yahoo. And now, really good for Yahoo.
Ms. Mayer recently banned working from home. She’s taking some heat for it but I applaud her. Yahoo is getting its ass kicked by Google and something had to be done. Telling employees to come to work and be part of a work community sounds like a good idea. Ms. Mayer shows up for work. Of course she had a nursery built at the office for her baby, but I have no problem with that. As my boss tells me when he leaves early and I have to work over for him; “It’s good to be the king.” Or queen.
According to some of the websites I frequent, Ms. Mayer and Yahoo are being vilified on blogs for the new policy. Tough. She has a company to run and like it or not, sometimes the boss has to make decisions that inconvenience people for the good of the company. If someone is smart enough to work for a high tech company then surely they can find a babysitter. Most likely Yahoo will provide daycare anyway so quit your bitchin’ and get to work.
