About this product
- DescriptionAt the birth of the Internet Age, computer techlogists in small, aggressive software development companies became part of a unique networked occupational community. They were creative, team-oriented, and enthusiastic workers who built boundaryless careers, hopping from one employer to ather. In his absorbing ethgraphy The Company We Keep, sociologist Daniel Marschall immerses himself in IntenSivity, one such techlogical workplace. Chronicling the employees' experiences, Marschall examines how these workers characterize their occupational culture, share values and work practices, and help one ather within their community. He sheds light on the nature of this industry marked by highly skilled jobs and rapid techlogical change. The experiences at Intensivity are w mirrored by employees at Facebook and thousands of other cutting-edge, high-tech start-up firms. The Company We Keep helps us understand the emergence of virtual work communities and the character of the contemporary labour market at the level of a small enterprise. Daniel Marschall is a Professorial Lecturer in Sociology at The George Washington University. He works for the AFL-CIO as the Federation's Policy Specialist for Workforce Issues.
