Yahoo CEO Exits
The Yahoo CEO has made many contributions to Yahoo etc. I use Yahoo for web searching emails etc. So with Verizon purchasing it that will be more revenue for them as a business.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
I don't think Yahoo's demise can entirely be blamed on Mayer, but she never seemed to have a handle on moving Yahoo forward. I can recall when everyone in an office I worked in used Yahoo for search until a co-worker said we should try Google. I can't recall the last time I've used Yahoo for a search, but I do go to the finance section on occasion.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Mike, I totally agree!  Yahoo lost its way and was not able to recapture their earlier leadership position.  Google and others have become much more relevant!  They were the predominate system but failed to look at the developing market.

I also agree about Mayer, she took over when the ship was already sinking.  She did not appear to know how to redirect it or lead to new relevance.  She did a good job, but not good enough!  I also agree we should not shed tears for her, she walks away with good comp. for her time and efforts.

Now it will be interesting to see what happens.

I haven't used Yahoo search either. The only time I end up on its site is when I read a  news outlet draw on Yahoo news for its article. That's because I always like to trace news to the original reported source.

@Ariella Why do I not remember Yahoo as a search engine? I think I've only ever used Google, and I hate it when "Bing" comes up. I do not like that search engine. As far as Mayer goes, don't know much about what she did or didn't do at Yahooooo, but she's pretty much set for life now. Some people are just very lucky.

@srufolo1 - In my "anti-coporations" belief system, I generally see most people with that kind of money as heartless. Perhaps it takes that kind of "heartlessness" to get there. As for people who think keeping homeless out of tents will solve the problem of homelessness - they lack the understanding for why people lose their homes to begin with. His view makes perfect sense when you look at who he is and where he comes from.

@elizabethv  The greed gets to them. There are a few people with lots of money that are not heartless, such as some actors and musicians, including Bono and I'd like to squeeze Brad Pitt in here. Guess they are not corporations. However, you do hear of the occasional story where a CEO of a corporation pays for people's weddings or makes sure they don't get paid any more than what their workers do. How long these corporations last though is another question.

@srufolo1 - My understanding is that George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey are pretty generous people as well. Though you are probably right, it just comes with the territory. As for CEO's who pay for people's weddings and what-not - I tend to take the more cynical "they just want a tax write-off" approach. I have heard abouta  corporation in Washington state I with a starting pay of 50k, or so. Which for a starting position is pretty decent. I have no idea how the company is doing now.

Verizon update
Verizon will take a $500 million pretax charge for its deal to buy Yahoo's Web assets. Verizon will eliminate about 2,100 jobs or 15% of the combined Yahoo/AOL unit that is now called oath. In an SEC filing, Verizon said it would save more than $1 billion in cost savings through to 2020 due to synergies from the deal.

It'll be really interesting to see what Verizon has in store for Yahoo! Now that I'm typing this I am thinking of the commercials they used to run with the guy that said "Yahooooo!" At the end. Maybe that was part of their demise, the commercials slowed down as Google became the power giant it is today. So while Google's name was getting tossed around the office, no one heard "Yahooo!" to remind them to go back to the site. I do still know a few people that use Yahoo, but there aren't many and they are far between.

Yahoo didn't have a Steve Jobs...
I'm not sure how Yahoo could have been saved in hindsight... Apple had Steve Jobs to turn it around, and employees at Apple respected him because he founded the company from a garage.

Mayer didn't have that kind of cred at all. And she made a few major blunders. On top of that, Yahoo has been a haphazard collection of semi-failed startups for years. I don't think her strategy of buying Tumblr was wrong, but.. it just turned out that Tumblr was not Instagram/Snap. If Yahoo had actually gotten into a real "Mobile First" strategy, it could have turned out differently. But Yahoo didn't have the right engineers/employees. 

Apple still had some rockstar employees when Jobs returned. I'm sure Yahoo had some, but maybe not in the right fields. Eg. Apple had rockstar designers and hardware engineers, which turned out to be great to build the iMac/iPod/iPhone/etc. But Yahoo had.. great site reliability engineers? And it didn't really have a clear direction for building out the next social media platform with them....? Maybe it lacked the algorithm engineers who could keep Tumblr really engaging and useful?

Re: Yahoo didn't have a Steve Jobs...
@mhhf1ve, I fully agree with your assessment.  They did not have the leadership, the technology capabilities or engineering. 

Also, they had 5 different CEO's in six years.  They were spending all of their time dealing with internal issues that only weakened them in the long run.  Marissa would have been effective in taking the helm for a well functioning company, they that did not describe them.

You are right, it needed a "new visionary" (ie Steve Jobs, et al) if it had any hope.

Or was she put in that position to dismantle the company and/or see it sold. Last year about this time I was working for a different company, and we had recently had a new CEO put in place and most people thought it was very obvious that she was in that position to shut the facility down.

It would have been hard NOT to know Yahoo's situation. Mayer did okay. It would have been a miracle (in hindsight) to pull off an Apple-like makeover like Jobs did. 

It's really too bad Tumblr didn't work out. It wasn't a horrible idea to acquire a social media platform, but it just didn't get the growth it needed.

Re: Yahoo didn't have a Steve Jobs...
@elizabethv, most employment contracts (which set up the parachutes) are based on expectations for what value the executive will bring - so they are placing bets that the name, contacts, vision, execution, etc., will deliver this value to the company.  So in my mind, it is less a matter of expectation of how they will manage and more a bet on what they can create.

The parachute then exists - one way or the other - based on this expectation.  Plus, don't forget these contracts are also intended to compete against other companies who may want this executive.

I think the bigger the company, the smaller the influence a CEO has on the company as a whole. There are always people in other positions making decisions about the company, it's all clockwork. And they really don't effect culture nearly as much as divisional managers tend to. It all tends to come down to a number of smaller "companies" that work as part of a larger corporation.

CEOs always get blamed when a company starts to decline. However, in some cases the decline of a company could have started prior to hiring that CEO and may take several years to address all the major issues especially since the CEO does not have carte blanche and must get input from the Board Members.

Yahoo arguably wasn't in the same business as Google. You seem to think that Google is in the search business, but it's not. It's in the advertising business. And Google's *real* algorithm that makes it money isn't the one that improves its search results for end users, but the bidding algorithms for AdWords/AdSense.... Yahoo and other companies that had search engines never came close to creating the same kind of competitive market for keywords -- not because they didn't have decent search results, but because they didn't have the right algorithms for making advertisers fight each other to pay for the privilege of placing links near related searches.

Microsoft has proven that consumers don't really care about the difference in search result quality that much... but for whatever reason, users don't really switch.

Re: CEOs Blame
@freehe, good point about the Board.  The Boards do not typically change, so they provide significant continuinty - whether positive or negative.

Re: CEOs Blame
The right leader will welcome change and expect vibrant debate--I would suggest that Uber was the perfect example that finally forced Travis K to quit--qlthough he and his minimons still keep control which bodes ill for it long-term.

Re: CEOs Blame
@mpouraryan, great vision for effective leadership.  And the right leaders make change a winning proposition for everyone.  The example of Uber, as you stated, is where developing the best solution does not turn out to be the driving force.

Note:  It usually leads to collapse at some point - Case in point!
