Carol Bartz’s Memo to All Employees: I’ve Just Been Fired

Carol Bartz confirmed that she is no longer the CEO of Yahooin a memo that appears to have been sent from her iPad to all employees of the company.

Mashable has obtained a copy of the note, which reads:

To all,

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.


Sent from my iPad

The firing apparently came as a surprise to Yahoo employees.

Mashable reached out to a source at the company when the initial report of Bartz’s departure surfaced, at which time the news had not yet reached our contact’s desk. Several minutes later, however, the short missive from Bartz included here, sent to, appeared in our contact’s inbox.

In other words, someone either forgot to turn off Bartz’s email account before doing the deed or decided (however unlikely) to let Bartz have the last word, which in a way is fitting, given Bartz’s reputation for colorful candor.

As of 8:08 p.m. ET, Yahoo employees have yet to receive an official memo from the company updating them on Bartz’s departure.
