Marissa Mayer: successful brand manager, human nightmare

BUSINESS INSIDER… The Truth About Marissa Mayer: She Has Two Contrasting Reputations. There are two views of former Google VP and new Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer in the industry.

One is that she is a brand name product leader who played a crucial role in helping Google develop its most valuable business—search—and then went on to guide the development of several other popular products including Gmail, Google Maps, and Google News.

The other view of Marissa Mayer: A source described an executive who „will work harder than anyone“ and „is smarter than 99 percent of the people,“ but „can’t scale herself“ and „doesn’t understand managing any other way than intimidation or humiliation.“
