Google commands total equity of more than $58 billion.
It's been dubbed one of the most innovative companies in history and the best place to work on the planet, but it’s also facing major controversies on issues of privacy and business practices. We're talking about Google, of course. Given that the company now employs more than 33,000 people worldwide and commands annual revenues of nearly $38 billion, it's difficult to believe that it's only 14 years old and started out as a doctoral research project conducted by founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University. No matter how you personally feel about Google, the company’s constant expansion and inventiveness have made it one of the world's most dominant technology companies.
