OK, so TechCrunch has acquired a copy of an email sent out to all Yahoo employees, by CFO Susan Decker. It’s a long-winded memo highlighting restructuring and promotions (congrats to Tim Cadogan).
I’m not going to re-hash the entire email, but I do want to ask this (not so) rhetorical question:
“What does the leaking of internal emails say about the morale and unity at Yahoo?”
It’s interesting that while getting this kind of stuff from Google is like getting blood out of a stone – Google employees are very loyal to the vision – Yahoo employees are leaking this stuff out to the public.
If Yahoo is going to make a legitimate attempt to gain ground on Google, it needs to look within the core. It’s going be tough to fight the battle, if you don’t have the loyalty and support of the troops.
Now, to be fair, maybe I’m way off base here, but it certainly feels like there’s a lot of angst among Yahoos.
