Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is facing a backlash on her telecommuting squash. The Guardian lays out a nice editorial. Check it out.
I'm sitting writing this in my home office at 7:42 am. I started planning the piece in my head at 7 am when I took my dogs for a walk. I emailed three editors at the Guardian about it 15 minutes ago and heard back immediately. On the desk next to me are this month's bills, waiting to be paid once I've finished writing. At work I have a reputation for being productive and fast. I also pride myself on how I manage my time. I get paid a certain amount of money from the Guardian. I divide that into a rate per hour I think I'm worth, and I give my bosses those hours. The company doesn't need to pay my travel costs and because I don't travel. I don't need to add that time into the equation.
