Is Working From Home Good For Mothers? A (Partial) Defense of Marissa Mayer
Marissa Mayer is not the most popular person in the parenting blog universe right now.
Her decision to ban telecommuting at Yahoo! has provoked outrage from nearly all quarters.
And as I write in my post for Role/Reboot, I am not a fan of Mayer. However, based on my experience trying to work from home, I have some sympathy for her skepticism about the productivity of telecommuting employees.
Take a look at my post, and then I’d love to hear from you. Was your experience different?
What has your experience been like working from home? Particularly if you were staying home with small children, did you feel like you were doing an effective job at both roles?
