Questions About Marissa Mayer on Quora

Questions About Marissa Mayer

reddit.com: search results

Feminist CEO tries to emulate Steve Jobs. What could go wrong.

TL;DR: Marrissa Mayer, Yahoo CEO, climbed the ladder surprisingly fast, tried to be the best asshole she could. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/21/magazine/what-happened-when-marissa-mayer-tried-to-be-steve-jobs.html?_r=1

"Every Monday at 3 p.m. Pacific, she asked her direct reports to gather for a three-hour meeting. Mayer demanded all of her staff across the world join the call, so executives from New York, where it was 6 p.m., and Europe, where it was 11 p.m. or later, would dial in, too. Invariably, Mayer herself would be at least 45 minutes late; some calls were so delayed that Yahoo executives in Europe couldn’t hang up till after 3 a.m."

"Mayer tended to require countless tests about user preferences before making an important product decision. But when it came to media strategy, she seemed perfectly comfortable going with her gut."

Other notable achievements

  • Tried to design the Yahoo logo herself in a weekend
  • Read a children's book to a room full of employees, to stunned silence
  • Fires remote employees, yet builds a nursery for her child.

 

Edit: Addressing one the comments.

On being an asshole

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1028615

"Due to her foul mood, people rarely, if ever, speak up and tell her when she is being an ass or that she is contradicting herself. "

"As someone who has been in meetings with Marissa I'd say that the reason she is ... not universally loved within Google (to put it mildly), is the fact that she isn't a particularly nice person or good leader. She might see herself as rational and efficient, but to a lot of people she comes across as rude, insecure, and worst of all: horribly inconsistent."

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer: "I don't think that I would consider myself a feminist"

Read the Slate butthurt about it here and here:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2013/02/27/marissa_mayer_says_she_s_not_a_feminist_in_pbs_makers_documentary.html

http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2013/03/marissa_mayer_is_not_a_feminist_is_the_term_useful_anymore.html

Her objection seems to be mostly about style, which she summarizes as “militant drive and sort of the chip on the shoulder.” When thinking about women, “there’s more good that comes out of positive energy around that than negative energy.”

A bit of info about Marissa Mayer's (CEO of Yahoo) work at Google just blew my mind. (Or how equality can be achieved by someone denying all association with feminism)

Full article Slate.com

"Mayer more or less agrees with the aims of movement feminists, only she goes about achieving them in unorthodox ways. During her tenure at Google, she took pains to accommodate working mothers, only she did in a way that did not give them special status. (She allowed employees to identify their personal priorities, so a mom could leave early for a kid’s soccer game and a young man with no kids could leave early for a weekly potluck dinner with his old college roommates). She could have passed a special policy for working mothers. But Mayer’s way seems more viable in a world in which men and women compete equally for scholarships and jobs and are moving toward sharing domestic responsibilities, too."

AmA request: Marissa Mayer

Here's Marissa Mayer's wikipedia

I have a few questions:

  • Why did you leave Google ?

  • Does being a mother change the way you perceive your role as a CEO ?

  • How can Yahoo compete with Google in online adversiting without successful interconnected platforms like youtube/gmail ?

  • Do you think that, as a woman & a mom, your type of management is different from other CEOs ?

  • Would you call yourself a geek ?

  • Any Ted conference that you would recommend ?
