According to this former senior manager who worked in technology for 16 years, an anecdote with the founders of Google shows how over time it has ceased to be an isolated company.

It has been only 25 years since Google’s search engine was launched., a device that has revolutionized not only technology but people’s lives. Do you remember how you used to live when you couldn’t find anything on the internet within seconds?

Today, the Google search engine is still the company’s central service, the backbone of the rest of its products and services, making the company one of the largest companies in the world. It is worth $1.3 trillion and has around 176,000 employees worldwide, despite their recent layoffs.

Since 1998 when the Google search engine was launched and all of its servers fit in a closet to its current status of a consolidated multinational, the company has faced significant changes. And along the way, according to some critics, part of its essence and originality has been abandoned.

you know well Sridhar RamaswamyCEO of search engine Niva Today, who started working on the Google search engine in 2003, when the company’s 2 co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, were still around.

“In the early 2000s, each person was smarter than the last,” Nieva CEO said about his early years at Google. He left the company in 2019.

Ramaswamy, who spent 16 years working at Google and rose to the position of senior vice president and head of the company’s advertising division, explains Business Insider Spain One Anecdotes with Sergey Brin and Larry Page Which according to him perfectly exemplifies the transformation that Google has experienced from its vibrant beginnings to the present day.

“a google There were always very heated debates on many topics, I’ve been to a lot of them and I give them a lot of credit for not saying goodbye because I often used to say things like nobody wants to do what you say“, says the current CEO of Niva.

Ramaswamy himself, Sergey Brin and Larry Page were among the debaters in one such debate in the early 2000s.

“Larry and I disagreed. Sergei told me: Sridhar, in a normal company you have to do what we tell you because that’s how companies work. But it’s Google – we’ll find another way to do it,

Sergey Brin’s proposal to resolve the disagreement was quite satisfactory: that half of the team work on the idea of ​​the Google co-founders and the other half on the idea defended by Ramaswamy.

If we think that Sridhar was talking to the President of his company, then his answer is surprising and powerful.

,I told them: no, your idea is still bad, and after that conversation i still had a job, I give them credit for that,” he says.

Ramaswaney is now the CEO of Neeva and says that over time, the dynamic operations of the early years at Google died out as it grew to become a company of mammoth proportions. And this made him stop feeling comfortable and left Google in 2019.

,Being in a monopoly position puts you in an awkward position over time., and it shows in things how Google has essentially stopped making art into its business by prioritizing its own local results. This happened in the early 2010s,” he says.

Several factors explain the change in Google’s strategy in recent years. The company has more and more lines of business, such as its Google Cloud cloud services unit, that focus on other companies, not the end consumer. In addition, the workforce grew to 190,000 employees, the largest in the region.
