Facebook employees take their time when it matters most, and that patience has enabled the company to grow tremendously over the past ten years, says Robert Sutton, author of "Scaling Up Excellence". Also helping Facebook's growth was CEO Mark Zuckerberg's early decision to put product over profits. If Facebook wants to continue scaling up, says Sutton, it needs to emulate Google as it matures and make a transition to a different type of workforce, which is more focused on the needs of the employee and his or her family.
