Niceties Are Not a Big Part of Yahoo’s Corporate Culture


Here is the text of the companywide e-mail that now-former Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz sent upon learning she had been fired this afternoon:

I am very sad to tell you that I've just been fired over the phone by Yahoo's Chairman of the Board. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you only the best going forward.

Though she chose to forgo a valediction, she left the "Sent from my iPad" tag in place. [All Things D]
