How Google Keeps Employees by Treating Them Like Kids

Here’s a story I came across today which you might be interested:
I was talking with a friend the other day about that perennial subject of conversation in the Valley, Google. And finally she gave me the clue that made the whole place make sense. “It’s about infantilizing people,” she explained. “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.”
Seriously, why would someone complains if you have too much fun while working and still get the job done?
