Employees at W.L. Gore, makers
of Gore-Tex waterproof fabric, have a cooperative spirit that arises from
a unique structure with no fixed hierarchy, few titles and no formal job
descriptions. The 6,000 employees have owned the company and shared in
its day-to-day operations for 44 years. Despite the recession last year,
sales were up.
