DailyDirt: Airing Out Dirty Corporate Laundry
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Big companies often pride themselves on the corporate cultures they’ve developed. But over time, maintaining the same culture can become difficult as industries change and when shareholders aren’t so happy with a company’s performance. When employees leave a big firm, the culture can quickly bleed away. Here are just some examples of employees publicly pointing out some corporate culture shifts.
- Greg Smith resigned from Goldman Sachs, and he had a lot to say about how the company changed on his way out. “People who care only about making money will not sustain this firm…” [url]
- Stephen Elop’s “burning platform” memo was published a little over a year ago in 2011. Has Nokia hit the water yet? [url]
- Brad Garlinghouse wrote Yahoo’s “Peanut Butter Manifesto” back in 2006. It looks like that peanut butter is being spread thick on patent trolling now. We should all hate peanut butter, indeed. [url]
- James Whittaker says there’s a big difference between the Google culture and the newer Google+ culture. Guess which one he thinks is double plus ungood. [url]
