On Feb. 6, 2012 Fortune magazine’s Adam Lashinsky wrote “The Secrets Apple Keeps” about a company keeping a lid on new products to keep a competitive advantage. It is a paranoid place that is not always a lot of fun to work for. The pay is competitive but people still want to work there for the prestige. Lashinsky also interviewed Google’s Larry Page. Compared to Apple Google seems more open and fun loving.
LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman wrote “The Real Way To Network” about building relationships versus traditional networking. Dale Carnegie is still relevant.
David A. Kaplan wrote “Salesforce’s Happy Workforce” about Marc Benioff’s philosophy and practice of trying to do the right thing.
