Yahoo! has acquired Tumblr, for better or for worse. Let us take you through the five stages of…grief? Confusion? Ennui? We don’t know how to feel, either.

Marissa Mayer seems to be making an effort at Yahoo! to take into account that not everyone is a genius workaholic. She is making changes at the company that show compassion for families, and this will not only benefits her employees but the welfare of the company as well.

In today’s #watwc: the questions we should be asking Yahoo! since it banned telecommuting, should women stop changing their last names, what Lena Dunham would do with one more hour, and more!

Marissa Mayer has already been having a bad couple of weeks in terms of popularity, what with the ban on working from home and the nursery built in her office, and this latest bit of news is not going to help her. Mayer got a $1.2 million bonus at Yahoo after just under six months there, according to a regulatory filing.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s decision to ban telecommunicating sparked a national debate over work-life balance (some of it taking place on this very site), yet one Yahoo employee is going to extreme lengths — thousands of miles of length, to be exact — to fulfill Mayer’s wish of having “all hands on deck.” Jacqueline Reses, Yahoo!’s Executive Vice President of People and Development, commutes 6,000 miles a week to the office. (And here I was grumbling about how slow the N train is…)

In today’s EOD roundup, we agree: it’s time to stop lambasting Marissa Mayer. The President and CEO of Yahoo has garnered some sharp criticism this week after banning remote work and telling the PBS-AOL series Makers that she didn’t “consider [herself] a feminist.” While both actions are problematic, it’s still important to shed light on the gendered insults being directed her way.

This is not the best week for Marissa Mayer. After banning working from home at Yahoo, Marissa has now installed a nursery in her office. Normally, this wouldn’t be a big deal — I actually think it’s great that she’s bringing her son to work. However, she’s also making an exception for herself. I don’t think any of the other employees at Yahoo are allowed to have cribs next to their desks.
