Are there any ethnographies of corporate culture that are primarily academic?

I've always found the one-sided discourse about big-business leaders to be overly simplistic: they can't really all be people that are only out for profit and have no compassion at all. There has to be a cultural element to it, I've thought: one that leads them to sometimes make destructive decisions and justify it. But most of what I've read in that area is pretty biased - it's either vilification, or an explanation that's just way too simple. Have there been any academic books on the corporate culture of big business? I'd be interested in reading something like that.
