Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft Org Chart
Funny interpretation of Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Oracle organization charts.
Org Chart of Apple, Google, & Microsoft
Drawn by Emmanuel (Manu) Cornet, Software Engineer at Google Inc. and published on his small site Bonker’s World.
- Amazon has a boring standard org chart structure
- Google is a mess due to numerous random projects without clear centralized direction. Engineers can create projects and abandon projects easily.
- Facebook is a social network mesh (stereotype?)
- Microsoft is full of business division infighting. The large Windows and Office divisions suck up most of the resources.
- Apple has clear, centralized directions. Sometimes CEO Steve Jobs even reviews works of individual engineers. Probably also inspired by Apple’s Cupertino spaceship headquarters proposal.
- Oracle bought Sun Microsystems, which owns Java. Google’s Android OS stole code from Java and tried to change it enough to not pay licensing fee according to Sun, that’s why Oracle is suing Google. (This is similar to the Sun vs. Microsoft Java Virtual Machine lawsuit. In that case, Sun was able to successful take down Microsoft’s unauthorized Java knockoff, during height of Microsoft power a decade ago.)
