One More (Big) Victory For Marissa Mayer And Yahoo

Claire Gordon

Yahoo's revenue is on the rise. Its stock value is surging. Its homepage and photo service Flickr sport flashy new designs. The mega-blogging platform Tumblr is in its war chest. And now, a year after she became Yahoo's CEO, there is another feather Marissa Mayer can stick in her cap: Yahoo has become one of the best companies for work-life balance.

Yahoo is number 16 on Glassdoor's ranking of the top companies for balance, based on employee ratings, the first time the company has cracked the top 25. It's a particularly significant accomplishment, since Mayer has been relentlessly scrutinized --and criticized -- ever since she banned telecommuting.
