Sociologist Aaron Swartz wrote an interesting article about the fact Google keeps employees by treating them like kids.

“Give them free food, do their laundry, let them sit on bouncy brightly-colored balls. Do everything so that they never have to grow up and learn how to live life on their own.”

“It’s as if this place is being decorated by seven-year-olds,”

“But as much as they may want to leave Google, the infantilizing tactics have worked: they’re afraid they wouldn’t be able to survive anywhere else.”
