Pao is clearly the wrong woman for the job right now, but Reddit’s problem goes much higher than that. Pao and her bosses at Advance Publications, one of the world’s largest media companies, are acting like Reddit is run by their employees, who will follow their instructions because they’re paid to do so. But it isn’t.
Yep. Pao is a highly-paid moron. When I could do a better job as CEO, you are the wrong person for the job.
And I’ll tell you what, my main “task” CEOin’ would be sitting in my office watching Orphan Black and occasionally screaming out the door for some more pizza to whatever assistant happened to be nearby while I awaited the IPO and my options to vest.
And I’d still be better than Pao because with my, uh, hands-off CEOin’ I wouldn’t actively be fucking things up.
I wanted to like Pao because hey, woman as head of a large internet media concern. But alas women can be just as MBA-infectedly incompetent as men.
