Google culture

Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google is interviewed by Steve Pearlstein for the Washington Post Website. They discuss subjects like "Googzilla" and the Google culture and how this influences the way Google employees and managers work. Within Google it is sometimes seen that managers work for employees and not employees working for the manager. Because of the highly driven workforce they simply need managers to plan, take care of budgets and be some sort of firewall for internal politics while the employees can spend all the time on developing new systems and maintaing existing systems. A great way of working in my opinion which could very well be mixed with the new way of working you see on a rollout in for example the Netherlands at Microsoft and Capgemini for example.
