Google: The best place to work at?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aditya Sengupta @ 8:47 pm

Now, the Googleplex, I hear, is a great place to work at. Well, more like the kind of place I would like to work at.

The Googleplex has always been famous, but this photo-essay by Time Magazine gives an awesome insider’s perspective of what it’s like to work at the company that has been called, for a while now, the best company to work at.

Here are a few of the ‘perks‘:

  • They have a rock climbing wall.
  • You get to take your dog to work.
  • You get to work on couches. No need of those painful office chairs.
  • Recreation Facilities – Workout room with weights and rowing machine, locker rooms, washers and dryers, massage room, assorted video games, Foosball, baby grand piano, pool table, ping pong, roller hockey twice a week in the parking lot.
  • They have a rock climbing wall.
  • Free food. Healthy lunch and dinner- Gourmet cuisine at that. Snack Rooms with bins packed with various cereals, gummi bears, M&Ms, toffee, licorice, cashew nuts, yogurt, carrots, fresh fruit and other snacks. Dozens of different drinks including fresh juice, soda and make-your-own cappuccino.
  • The cool 3D rotating image of the world the toggle switch that allows you to view points of light representing real time searches taking place all over the world.
  • Did I mention the rock climbing wall?

Hmmm…. Why oh why didn’t I take up computer science?

For all the NPoV sticklers, here is a Microsoft guy’s point of view.

P.S: Free food means free coffee right?!! 😀
