Here we have Marissa Mayer, once Google employee #20, now President and Chief Executive Officer of Yahoo! The shot is from Glamour last year, and I wouldn’t even think about trying to figure out the context:
Then again, Mayer’s one moment in the spotlight came this past spring, when she decreed that all telecommuters on the Yahoo! payroll would be expected to return to actual office jobs or else. Maybe a room with a large red ball in it might not have been her idea of an office environment.
I must note, however, that Mayer was five months pregnant when she took the Yahoo! job; subsequently, she took a whole two weeks of maternity leave and then built a nursery for little Macallister next to her office. Workaholic? Maybe.
