[OFF-TOPIC?] - Marissa Mayer Just Made Her Second Great Move As Yahoo CEO
It’s sensible for now. Whether it’s a great move will be decided based on how she uses that money, I guess.

Giving employees free food is a brilliant move? How about assuring employees they the layoff waves are over? - This will motivate the right employees to stay.
As far as the dividends are concerned, isn't this decison in the hands of Yahoo's Board of directors?

Free food is a brilliant move because it sounds good, and yet it costs next to nothing. Also, it's only available on ONE campus. It gives incentive to employees at other campuses to stay for the next 3 to 6 months without costing a dime. Employee retention at no cost? It's brilliant.
After 6 months, more people will get fired over restructuring and the cost for free food can be recouped from cost savings. Win win.
