The book "The millionaire next door" speaks about how these surprising successes aren't rife with the luxuries of wealth, but rather, modesty you'd never expect them to possess. It's usually those who WISH they were millionaires who unduly act like assholes.

I knew a CEO who used to drive a modest Buick to work, in part to minimize differences between himself and his work force. He also spent time on the shop floor, talking with employees, asking them about how their children were doing, and the like.

The company was highly successful, in part because the CEO championed a culture which emphasized equality and team work. By minimizing status differences and eliminating inappropriate behavior, Google is cultivating a successful corporate culture.
