The Myth of the Importance of Company Culture
Dr. John Grohol

An interesting take on things. Your perspective on what a company needs is exactly what I define to be “culture”. As you say “free lunches and playing video games are nice perks”, unfortunately many people confuse this with culture when actually it’s often just a smokescreen. Nothing puts me off more than when I see a company advertising “the cliched table football table, the beer fridge, etc as culture. I think what you’re describing here are just perks of the environment, but not culture.
As Google puts it: “Culture is really about bringing together great people to do great things.”
