To be or not to be (at the office) 
High-profile Yahoo Inc. CEO Marissa Mayer may have spent her goodwill in declaring that employees may no longer work from home. The reason? As explained by Yahoo Human Resources Chief Jackie Reses in a memo sent to employees:

Mayer’s black-and-white policy has particularly offended working mothers, a group that Mayer herself just joined - and has compensated for by using her vast personal wealth to build a nursery next to her office.

Many view telecommuting as the only way time-crunched women can care for young children and advance their careers without the pay, privilege or perks that come with being the chief executive of a Fortune 500 company.
