Org Charts Galore!

I've added a new category on the side bar that gathers the Org charts of some of the top companies in Search and ecommerce. This information comes from Cogmap.com. Aren't you the least bit curious as to who reports to whom? Well, now you can see. These charts are supposed to be updated regularly and in the case of eBay there are re-orgs about every 18 months so things will change.

Update: Please be aware that these charts are not managed and updated by the respective companies and therefore, most likely have some inaccuracies. So follow these links for your curiosity and entertainment value only.

So have some fun.

Great, but what guarantees that the data is correct? It's not like eBay HR is sitting there and making sure that the charts are correct. This info is almost as good as no info at all.

Lighten up Francis! It is a snapshot of each company. What exactly is your point? I don't recall stating these were from each companies HR but they will get you closer to the organization. Maybe I should have put "for entertainment purposes only".

The eBay Org chart is pretty spot on. Based on the number of people clicking on the links I think there is some interest here.

But, I do appreciate your comment.

Sorry about the tone of my last comment. For a moment there I had a flash back to answering an email from one of my former eBay customers -- 95% of my customers were a joy.

I truly do want comments like that on the blog. I do not mind debate and I don't have any problems with a reader disagreeing. In fact I would encourage it.

Unfortunately I tend to be a little sarcastic. My doctor (Psychologist) and I are working on it. :-)

No problem, Randy. Not offended. I just think that misinformation is worse than no information at all. If you care about the top management layer of a company, then look at their public filings. But if you care about some people deeper in the organizaton, I'm pretty sure that cogmap doesn't have it right. I'm pretty certain that it's illegal for employees to publish such information. Secondly, what is an eBay employee's incentive for providing this information. So, now you have information posted by a bunch of outsiders who think they know. I'm asking you to think critically, not just promote things without thinking. You might also want to check out http://orgchart.forbes.com . Similar idea. Here is someone else that have a different idea, but these charts are private. Hopefully at some point they will let people publish their charts. http://www.orgpluslive.com


Francis (how did you know my name?)

Francis (I might as well keep calling you that) You make a very valid point. In fact I have updated the original post to address your points.
I do have to confess though, that I don't see any harm in presenting them this way. I hope my disclaimer will suffice.
