37-Year old CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer, is married to venture capitalist Zack Bogue whom she married in 2009. With only a few months in at the helm Yahoo CEO ordered and delivered a memo to all work from home employees to get their tush into an office.

This brand spanking new mother of 1 has a net worth of $300 million and can certainly afford to hire all the help most of us only dream about.
Having flexible working arrangements which provides work-life balance for many is clearly not something she will ever have to worry about.
One can only speculate the real reason why she made this decision. A decision that will likely win her numerous accolades in the “attaboy club” but with working parents and especially working moms we feel betrayed. Nice Job Marissa. Now many of us lie in wonder if other (tech) companies will follow suit. Hopefully not.Certainly many will see this as hypocritical as one source indicated she has made claims to prioritize her faith and family before her job. Fair to say some may see it as hypocritical that she has yanked flexible working arrangements which provides work-life balance for many. This is almost as intriguing as facebook’s Sandberg who not so long ago claimed to stop working post 5 pm. I didn’t buy that one either. Either case, you can read more about that hogwash here. Time will tell whether this proves to be advantageous to the company but one thing is for certain…. this did not make me a fan.
