“They love ‘their’ company, they love their job, and they are used to getting their own way” [in reference to founder-CEO’s] (Heller, 2008). Larry Page, president of products, also known for his great leadership skills and labeled as a “micromanager” eventually turned the reigns over to Eric Schmidt in 2001. Google utilizes a “tight top to bottom approach and despite its college like campus has a large portion of the control placed at the top of the structure. The original founders maintain a tight grip on many of the company decisions. Both Larry and Sergey were hesitant to give up control to a CEO with business experience and even after accepting a CEO, the duo kept him on a short leash” (Vise, 2005, p. 111).
Ethical, Social, and Legal Responsibilities Google’s mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful” (Corporate Overview, 2010). They have a legal and public policy department t which is dedicated to ensuring that their “don’t be evil” motto is employed at all times. “To make sound decisions, today’s managers must not only be aware of their own values and ethics but also know those of others inside and outside the organization” (Rue & Byars, 2009). Google’s Philosophy is composed of “Ten Things We Know to be True” and worth mentioning are; focus on the user and all else will follow, you can make money without doing evil, and the need for information crosses all borders (Corporate Overview, 2010).
