According to Vanity Fair, “Yahoo’s offices have become a grim place of late. In February, C.E.O Marissa Mayer announced that the company would shed 15 percent of its staff as it explores a sale of its core business.
“This human “streamlining” has been particularly brutal for morale at Yahoo’s extensive media holdings. Numerous publications have been shuttered, including Yahoo Food, Yahoo Health, Yahoo Parenting, Yahoo Makers, Yahoo Travel, Yahoo Autos, and Yahoo Real Estate.
“In the company’s newsroom, on West 43rd Street, there are now so many empty desks that remaining employees have “corralled everyone together so it didn’t feel so lonely,”” one staffer told Vanity Fair.
