Money and power celebrated and unafraid Yahoo!'s CEO Marissa Mayer.
-- pick me about my parents try to play Yahoo! on the road to recovery.
Does I'm -- a few feathers along the way she has pushed out old executives vanished telecommuting.
And double paternity leave.
And she's gotten 36 point six million dollars so -- to do it but despite high pay.
Surging stock -- by the way the bottom line numbers.
Aren't there yet for Yahoo! here to help -- her tenure so far I have leaking from the independently -- -- -- Spencer and thanks all of you for joining us I.
Your thoughts out of the gate -- -- start with you.
Because she seem just unafraid.
-- this reminds -- -- -- Margaret Thatcher close at being powerful is like being a lady.
And nobody you know it says it's this idea that you don't have to tell people when -- powerful obviously.
-- -- very powerful she's making good decisions for ya do I support what she's doing.
And and and -- Whether you agree with her decisions or not she's the person charged that she's going to be held accountable -- got his success or if it goes up another way their failure.
Julie she's under a microscope without question I mean there have been articles back and forth and it's in the office I don't know if there's a nursery there are right on the heels and saying.
That -- not know what people telecommute.
She has something near her own office for her own child.
Is she playing with fire while I'm all for not telecommuting I tried it when I had a baby and it worked for about five -- yeah she took people who show the hello I work and that seems just sort of makes sense on a survey -- perfect sense to me out.
I'll tell you once you -- conference call with a baby crying in your -- you know you gotta get to work but.
I think if our working Yahoo! are you we wouldn't be able to build a nursery next door rate would be able -- not be able to bring -- kids I think what she should do is.
Build a daycare subsidize maybe daycare at Yahoo! and -- people bring their kids and drop them off their that is an already exist.
That's probably little -- -- don't knock her off as well yeah let's try a little bit more fair but Allison.
Good for her for going in there and cleaning up in and then sort of dropping the hammer off for -- -- a guy by the way nobody will be making a big deal out of that.
Well yeah I don't know how well I don't know if -- -- -- inch and this guy put a nursery next to his office I think people would be -- -- in the series -- yeah -- -- -- -- the putts are dropping the hammer and telecommuting Spencer.
You know that's the bottom line is is -- financial bottom line for shareholders because she was brought -- turn around a company that was really having a lot of challenges the stock prices up 56%.
Since she came on board in 2012.
The bottom line has improved that much.
-- -- you know we have to just keep in mind that Yahoo! with a complete basket case when she came man and was named CEO in July 2012.
The previous CEO did even last the month because right he -- Made up stuff -- -- resonates so.
Yahoo! needed some stability that was a sinking ship she's come and she's got off to a strong start he steadied the ship you got to give her a lot of credit for that.
But Yahoo! has been in decline for a long time many many years and so.
This turnaround is not gonna happen in a few quarters no -- take multiple years to turn this company around and management actually acknowledges that so.
You no doubt the numbers aren't there yet but he's putting in place -- how they.
-- I mean that's my next question this Spencer is -- selling -- seeds of really turning this company around because in the long run.
That is going to be the only thing that really matter.
-- yes I do think she has.
Done a number of things to.
Create a stronger foundation for Yahoo! for example.
You know Yahoo! with down to the -- -- actually seen as a place that so you know they're getting more resonates through attrition rate is going down they made some.
Big key hires that harder top sales executive from school so she's put in place that talent base his -- and acquisitions.
Now she's got to build great products yes they're starting to do.
And it got to get revenue growth and little event comes to fruition how we enjoy it but let me ask you because we talk about power and money in the intersection of both a lot on -- show.
And usually one corrupting -- -- she is really embracing and celebrating both I mean she is under forty.
She's beautiful she's brilliant I mean I've interviewed her she is it if she if she spent stick.
The stock price has risen.
But at the same time you know she does really go out there and ruffle feathers she seems like she's not afraid of doing it is this strategy of embracing her power.
And raking in the go.
Working for her.
I like it I like her style I like that she's sassy and she does what she wanted.
That that's the style of the CEO someone have to take charge and I'm glad -- selling that kind of leadership and confidence in her own decisions you know these workplace.
This isn't that she's making about telecommuting or extended maternity leave.
She's not doing one or the other because she's trying to people please or trying to yeah.
-- be -- -- workers or give gift store workers he did it because dictate strategic business reason.
She wants to attract those more and more -- she wants to track -- -- -- Spencer was talking about and one -- -- did that attracting entertaining especially.
Talented female workers like yourself.
That by offering extended maternity leave -- and.
I -- not -- when you have someone like this there is inevitably a backlash over time I mean people are waiting for her to fail or to stumble and they're gonna really highlight it.
-- she's setting herself up for Walton I don't think so I mean if she's doing everything that says that you say is rates -- -- -- -- -- Yahoo! I don't think so at the end of the day she's gonna have to deliver to -- shareholders -- the -- -- to the people -- care about Yahoo! -- Yahoo!'s bottom line.
If she's going out there and essentially doing which he has to do.
The backlash we'll come from people who need -- backlash may come from -- think this -- this woman's youngest is beautiful and she's brilliant and all the things he just said.
Not good for her I mean good for her for going out there and owning it and -- just being.
-- which is you and I hope Yahoo! does while under her I think it'll be a tremendous asset.
For other women to have an example of somebody can turn -- a sinking ship actually should not going to be easy it's not going to be easy is that we said it's a tough business guys thanks for joining ask you appreciate it you think yeah.
