I don't know if Houston is a good example. It makes both of you guys points and disagrees With both.

He says the corporate office is where execs chill but the lower brass are elsewhere. In Houston the execs are here but also thousands of workers. In addition to housing many workers from companies headquartered there, it houses tens of thousands from companies such as ExxonMobil, shell, chevron, bp, who are not even headquartered there.

As for philanthropy, they do help build the city, but not the corporations themselves. Execs here prefer to donate in their name rather than the companies. Houston was built by donations from foundations by the Cullens, Browns, Morgans, Jones, Worthams, etc. Many buildings and places are named after these families rather than the company.

And yes, the donations create both direct and indirect benefit to the area. The Cullens donations to the university of Houston help educate the population and create new jobs. The Morgan's donations to parks help spur new development building up the city and this creating new jobs. Same people helped create the Texas Medical Center. William Rice left Money to build the most highly ranked university in the State.

Anyway, what I am saying is whether they are here or not, they still donate. But their presence is not invasive as you would believe. For such a corporate heavy metro ( both in headquarters and actually operations) Houston Doesn't have corporate names splashed on much.

Well they were wrong anyway.
Most companies executives DO live in the city the company is headquartered in so thats just an incorrect assumption.
Also cities where these companies are located benefit greatly whether indirectly or direct by the money these executives receive from those companies.
Robert Woodruff and the Woodruff name are all over Atlanta because his money came from Coca Cola.
Ted Turner who founded CNN,Ann CoX Chambers of Cox Enterprises and the names of somewhose names are not used to glorify the projects there money has built
However they all got rich from their companies they headed because they lived in the city were the companies were headquartered.
