Abstract

Previous research suggests that large, open personal networks with many structural holes help executives’ career, focusing on stable organizations. Using pre- and post-merger email networks, however, we find that building closed networks can be more advantageous if they are created across organizational boundaries (legacy organizational and functional) during a merger.
