Google-- california Head office

Q

Look at the human excellence……
Google's HQ, otherwise known as Googleplex, is situated in Mountain view, California in Silicon Valley.

Throughout the corridors between the six buildings, there are all sorts of Google memorabilia on display. They even employ guides who specialize in explaining Google's history to people. There are lava lamps everywhere, as well as free coke and candy all over the place. They've also got huge multicolored exercise balls everywhere.

Moving around: A slide allows quick access from different floors.... There are also poles available ... they are similar to the ones used in fire stations.

INOVATION:
Large boards are available just about everywhere because 'ideas don't always come when seated in the office' says one of Googles managers.

The casual atmosphere in Google HQ can be demonstrated by the fact that staff can bring their pets to work, and the pets are allowed to wander around the office.

Heaps of people have pets at Google HQ.

We already knew that working for Google had certain advantages, but, believe me, this giant of the search motor takes the welfare of its employees seriously.. As shown by this decompression (stress) capsule that is impermeable to sound and light...

You can use your own mode of transport in the office!!!!

Swimming is the best way to relax in office

So is the Gym!!!


There's a rule within Google: that there must be food within 100 feet of every employee.


This looks more like a toyshop than a workspace!

Rumor has it, a dude who had just joined Google had not been able to find a flat, so he lived at Google HQ for a month. He lived a lot better than Tom Hanks in The Terminal. Meals are provided, couches everywhere, there are showers in the bathrooms, a gym and a swimming pool. Better than the facilities at home! The dude didn't leave Google HQ for a month straight. By the way he stayed in an igloo….

Don't say Google treats their employees like kids... real kids play Lego on the floor, not on tables!

Whiteboards at Google HQ are filled with all sorts of great (or not) ideas in all sorts of different languages.
