Are there employees at Yahoo whose work is best completed at a physical office on a traditional nine-to-five schedule? I'm sure there are. Is this the best work structure for all 14,000 of their employees? Certainly not.
What do you call the process by which an employer who offered flexible work arrangements to employees for years suddenly decides to retrograde flexibility? Unflexing.
Am I going to have to pretend I won't put my kids first if I want to climb to the top? And if I'm not willing to do that, is that the same as "opting out"? I'm in law school because I want to have a great career, but I refuse to accept that means I'll never have kids -- or, if I do, I'll never see them.
This is a tech company, right? One in which everyone is connected 24/7? By taking away employees' ability to decide how and when they work, Yahoo! has effectively shot itself in the foot as it limps into the future.
What others see as the future of the workplace, and what parents see as a most important tool for juggling home and work, Marissa Mayer apparently sees as disposable.
Yahoo just revamped its popular homepage in favor of social and more heavy personalization, and I think they nailed it. They did what they had to. They made it more useful and more relevant for the social-heavy world we live in today.

Does the route to a company's top spot -- outside hire versus homegrown talent -- make any difference to a CEO's effectiveness and ultimate success? Let's take a closer look.
What is it about large companies (or small ones that run like large ones), that every issue has to be treated like a world war?
One year into an alliance with Yahoo! to stream live news events, and to p...
The subject of women and power, closing the gender gap etcetera, is one that we can expect to go on for a long time, at least until we begin to make real progress.
The presence of powerful women in tech fields could signal the demise of the industry's historically exclusionary culture and lack of mentors, which have deterred women from choosing technical careers.
Wow, you've decided to pump? (I just told you NOT to talk about your boobs). Okay, but please try and work around the conference schedule even if you feel like you are going to burst. Never mind that the AC is blasting so cold barely any milk is going to come out anyway.
