I’ve never been more successful in my life now that I’ve redefined success to fit my life. Mayer may have material success but everything has an opportunity cost. Her idea of success, based on recent events, is to enforce a gaggle of draconian, Industrial-age employee rules, then sell the company at enormous personal wealth gain. So, how is she sharing that success with those who actually created it? I don’t mean in a Marxist sense, but actually reward the efforts of those who thrived and/or survived these rules. I don’t know.
What I do know is I would not have thrived in that environment. Thanks for your time writing this. It makes public the insular feedback loop of self-indulgence that is Silicon Valley.
