Is corporate hot kind of like British hot?

You have to have a soul to be hot in most people's books.

She's hot and smart but she has the weirdest voice.

Can we now admit that the stock market makes as much sense as astrology?

Marissa is modestly attractive, but she is carefully touched up. I would hate to see what she looks like in the morning.

Another way would be to serve your customers better and produce value for the company, but you could also hire a woman.

No offense to the lady, but for what they are paying her, I believe they could do better.  That is to say, they could upgrade their business model.

"Hot"?

She's a 5.5 at most.

/yeah yeah, 26 minutes fark off, she isn't anything special

Female equivalent of "Executive Hair".

Sad to think of the contributions that homely chunky women could make that go unnoticed/unappreciated.  I like a nice annual bonus no matter what the people that help me get it look like.

Them fat broads should just dress and act like dudes if they want respect.

You don't need to hire a hot executive.  You should grab one of your current workers, promote them to CEO, douse them in gasoline and light a match.  No need to go outside the company.

It's relative. When this is your competition, a 5.5 becomes a 9.9:

She's an attractive lady.  No problem with that.

What bugs me is that most media coverage is along the lines of "Whoa! She's HOT! Like, SUPER hot! Hubba hubba! Oh, and... she's also smart and competent at her job. But lookit how HOT she is!"

No, I am not one of those drab feminists who resents beauty.  [HootersGirlsVs"WomenAreNotDecorations"Protestor.jpg]

And I get that her looks is what gets people to click on a thumbnail accompanying an article link.

But could you imagine Steve Ballmer posing in a magazine like this?

Actually, never mind.  This is nearly as bad.

yeh, those are photoshopped to hell and back.  she's a fine looking lady, but that'a  bit over board.

I do think she's hot. From everything I've read though she seems SUPER biatchy.

I'm sure there's a graph that explains that correlation...

Ending your employees telecommuting privileges while having the company build you a nursery next to your office rubs people the wrong way.

The article didn't say it was the ONLY way to increase stock price.

Given who we're talking about, they should A/B test 41 different hot females to find the one that results in the highest stock price.

Unfortunately, sociopath is a prereq for this type of jerb. Shame.
