Too bad all her execs are blithering idiots:
After spending months frustrated at how empty Yahoo parking lots were, [Yahoo CEO Marissa] Mayer consulted Yahoo’s VPN logs to see if remote employees were checking in enough. Mayer discovered they were not — and her decision was made.

Think about that. This has been going on for how long? Years? And none of the Yahoo executives noticed it before? Empty parking lots? Work not getting done? Objectives not getting met?
Perhaps Ms. Mayer decided she needed a dramatic move to get her more fundamental changes going. If so, good on her. One thing for sure: She has deeper problems than whether employees work from home. The expression “long knives” springs to mind.
