The new highly discussed and highly compensated chief executive of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer, has issued her first missive to her new troops two days after beginning the job. The main message: Don't stop, keep moving.
"The company has been through a lot of change in the past few months, leaving many open questions around strategy and how to move forward. I am sensitive to this," she wrote, according to AllThingsD, who got ahold of the memo.
Though she said she already has some ideas about how the company should move forward, Mayer said she wants first to develop perspective before developing a strategy, according to the memo.
Her note seems to indicate not to expect any rapid or radical shifts early in her tenure.
"In the meantime, please do not stop," the memo reads. "You are doing important work. Please don’t stop. If you have questions or concerns about whether to continue or not, please ask. However, with the exception of a few things that might heavily constrain us in the future, the answer is most likely: 'Yes, keep moving.'"
