Dramatically Flat, Radically Decentralized In many ways, Google is organized like the Internet itself: it’s highly democratic, tightly connected, and flat. Like so much of Google’s culture, the source of the company’s radical decentralization can be traced back to Brin and Page, both of whom attended Montesori schools and credit much of their intellectual independence to that experience. Says Mayer: “They don’t like authority and they don’t like being told what to do.” Brin and Page understand that breakthroughs come from questioning assumptions and smashing paradigms. Mayer calls how the pair once challenged Dean Kamen, the world-famous inventor who spawned the Segway scooter, on some arcane principle of mechanical engineering . A bystander might have thought them impertinent but, contends Mayer, “Larry and Sergy simply wanted to understand Dean’s thought process.” She goes on: “That atmosphere permeaes Google— don’t do something just because someone said to do it.” To Google’s engineers, “Queen Authority” is not an anarchist’s bumper sticker, it’s an innovator’s imperative.
Googlers expect to have the right to opine, intelligently, about anything to anyone—and be taken seriously. After all, that’s how the Net works. Eric Schmedit saw this firsthand during his inaugural meeting at the Googleplex, the company’s rambling corporate campus. Sure, Page and Brin had plenty to say in the meeting, but so did everyone else. As a flurry of points and counterpoints bounced around the room, Schmidt felt as if he were watching like this, he could quickly calibrate the relative status of the participants. But at Google, the freedom with which people expressed themselves, and their near-total lack of deference, yielded few clues as to the rank of those present. Schmidt left the meeting wondering who, exactly, was in charge. Reflecting on this experience, Schmidt realized that if he was going to succeed as CEO, he’d have to adapt his management style to Google’s, rather than the other way around. While his title might impress an external audience, it wouldn’t guarantee his credibility with the company’s strong-minded employees. Instead, like everyone else, he’d have to earn his “share of voice” by by adding value to the free-flowing conversations that were continually shaping, and reshaping. Google’s strategy.

The Liability of Tenure within the Marketing Industry: A Conceptual Paper Written by: Amiee Mellon, University of Montevallo
Abstract Contradictory findings exist regarding the relationship between employee tenure and ethical behavior. Many variable have been presented yet have failed to reconcile the relationship, leaving a significant gap in ethics literature. Building on previous theoretical and empirical analysis, this paper addresses the interaction between employee tenure; employee locus of control; and relative ethical standards. This article contributes to theory and practice by connecting the relationship between, and thus providing a better understanding of, the drivers of employee behavior and determining how these interactions lead tenured employees to engage in (un)ethical behavior.
