There has not been much evidence of this during the last few years.
Running a company the scope of Google carefully and kindly isn't easy. Sometimes you have to make a harsh move because not doing so may be more harsh or more risky. But, when you are a giant and you move aggressively with the best of intentions longer term but screw it up, good intentions are going to be difficult to see. Or, as your Dad told you I'm certain, good intentions are not enough. Google might not be evil (or greedy), but it might not matter.
What am I talking about? Well, for one, Google Plus. It is coming close to screwing up their search product, which is to say almost the entire internet. The intention was (likely) to make things "better" for everyone.
