    Pros

    After 5 CEO's as in as many years, the outlook here at Yahoo! is looking much brighter since Marissa has come onboard.

    Cons

    Free food? Free iphones? Free Macs? There isn't a CON I think of. Other than I wished these changes happened sooner (Marissa) before we lost so much good talent.
