Google's founders have often stated that the company is not serious
about anything but search. They built a company around the idea that
work should be challenging and the challenge should be fun. To that end,
Google's culture is unlike any in corporate America, and it's
not because of the ubiquitous lava lamps and large rubber balls, or the fact that
the company's chef used to cook for the Grateful Dead. In the same way Google
puts users first when it comes to their online service, Google Inc. puts employees
first when it comes to daily life in their Googleplex headquarters. There is an
emphasis on team achievements and pride in individual accomplishments that contribute
to the company's overall success. Ideas are traded, tested and put into practice
with an alacrity that can be dizzying. Meetings that would take hours elsewhere
are frequently little more than a conversation in line for lunch and few walls
separate those who write the code from those who write the checks. This highly
communicative environment fosters a productivity and camaraderie fueled by the
realization that millions of people rely on Google results. Give the proper
tools to a group of people who like to make a difference, and they will.
The Google Philosophy (back to Google
