Larry Page Wants Google To Be a Family

On the day Fortune gave Google the title of the country's best company to work, the search engine's CEO and co-founder sat down to speak with the magazine about life in Mountain View.

Larry Page took over as Google's CEO from Eric Schmidt just over a year ago and his ascent back to the top was met with some skepticism by both tech observers and investors.

Some investors didn't like Page's lack of interaction with them while some observers wondered about his edict for Google to go social.

Well in just over a year he has silenced most of critics by blowing away earnings numbers and by introducing popular products, such as Google+.

In his expansive interview with Fortune, Page talks about the founding principles of his company, life as a father and how that impacts Google, the future of free food on the company's campuses and all those famous other famous perks.

"It's important that the company be a family, that people feel that they're part of the company, and that the company is like a family to them," he said. "When you treat people that way, you get better productivity."
