Last fall, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer held an elaborate “Wizard of Oz” themed photo shoot with the company’s top execs that some say cost $70,000, Re/Code’s Kara Swisher reports.
Mayer planned the photoshoot in preparation for Yahoo’s annual “End of the Year” party.
Although she meant the shoot to boost morale, Swisher reports that some employees found its price embarrassingly high.
In the picture, Mayer poses as Dorothy, with execs like Kathy Savitt (who recently left the company) as Glinda and CFO Ken Goldman as the Wizard.
The party itself — marked on social media with the hashtag #NoPlaceLikeHere — featured fun photo booths, themed decorations, and a performance by Janelle Monae:
