Added Note: Please note this rant precedes the terrible earnings reports that resulting in a drop in Yahoo stock price. The glow is beginning to wear off. This article does a nice job of making the point; Marissa doesn’t look so good.
It’s a good thing I won’t have to be using anything from Yahoo much longer because their software absolutely sucks and has gotten much much worse since Marissa began her reign of terror. I think all the Yahoo employees are so irritated by her policies they are deliberately degrading their already bad software to the level of unusability so that “customers” will protest and finally drive Marissa out. This shows what happens when a business gets run in order to serve its impatient investors instead of customers, fake change that makes things worse. Several parts of Yahoo I used to routinely use, somewhat reluctantly because they sucked a little, now do not work at all.
But Yahoo has been and is the worst because they have all those unmotivated and hostile employees (and probably the least competent ones because anyone who can find any other job would never work at Yahoo). So Marissa, way to go – drive the truck with two flat tires, leaking gaskets, and worn-out brakes deeper into the ditch.
