I love my job, but still, I`d quit just to work two weeks at that place.
Ps. I always wondered what I-A-B HQ looks like...

Wow, places to sit down that look more comfortable then a plastic chair in a floruescent light bathed 5 feet by 6 feet room. Working there, I would find it hard to get anything done, what with all the massage chairs and fun ways of getting between floors.

The corparate idea on how to achieve innovation. Do they really think putting offices filled with ``creative`` furnature suddenly makes them imagine some fantastic idea ?

Reminds me of when we built the offices for women.com & hotjobs.com during the dot-com boom. (I`m an electrician in NYC.) Both offices originally had two floors, the second floor of which was dedicated to recreation (pool tables, arcade games, computers networked for Quake deathmatches) Within a year, they were each down to one floor. Making work fun is a great idea, just doesn`t work in reality.

Did somebody say my name?

Seriously now, what is the job those people get hired to do in the first place?

I know that they have masseurs and cooks and stuff like that but those people would never be there if there was no employee to begin with.

Anybody actually got that information?

"I am SO working for Google. And didn`t Sweden have the best healthcare too? Yeah, I`m soo there."

It`s in Zurich (Switzerland) so you will have to go through Germany and then catch a boat over the Baltic Sea to get to Sweden so I`m not sure how well that would work in an emergency. :D

The funny part is studies have found that people are more productive when working in environments like that.

Productivity takes a huge nose dive under long term stressful situations.

This looks all great, but a lot of amenitites means these people never leave the office. Work is all they do. I`ve temped at "great" offices like that, and they get annoyed if you merely work a 9 hour day as a TEMP. Full time employees can`t leave before 7, most stay until 9, presidents stay until 10 or 11. Do you want a pretty cage, or a real life?
