Mayer reportedly reneged on a secret deal with an activist investor to cut costs.
Yahoo's CEO, who gave birth to twins last year, has been criticized for taking a limited amount of time off work after having her babies and setting a bad example to her employees. That is not the case, she says.
The company is sinking deeper into the abyss but Marissa Mayer will get a payout no matter her company's fate.
The company is under fire from a successful activist investor group attempting to get the Internet pioneer's board to clean house, starting, possibly, with its CEO.
The beleaguered CEO of the struggling Internet pioneer delivers a "bold" strategic plan. She is cutting jobs, selling patents and real estate, and inviting would-be acquirers to speak up.
After a long week filled with board meetings and speculation about the future of her company, Mayer delivers identical twin daughters.
As with the birth of her son three years ago, Mayer writes that she plans to limit the amount of maternity leave she takes.
The Internet giant's chief executive, who celebrates her third anniversary as CEO in July, talks about where Yahoo is headed during today's shareholders meeting. The goal is to "build ourselves a future."
At a time when ad revenue is increasingly important, the Yahoo CEO reportedly keeps high-level marketing executives waiting for hours because she overslept.
During Marissa Mayer's tenure as CEO, Yahoo has acquired many companies. But Mayer singled out the artificial intelligence service Aviate for its potential to help the company make big ad bucks on mobile.
