Google: What is It like Inside the Plex?
If you ever wondered what it is like to work for Google, here is a short recruitment video that runs just over seven minutes.
The next time you enter that Google search query you will have a more personal feel of what life is like for those who provide the Google services.
What is impressive is how they treat their employees. It is a dream job. Twenty percent of your work time is for the employees own projects.
There is no doubt that Google is one of the most productive industries in the United States. They have a formula for their success. First, they take care of their employees, in ways no other corporation would consider. But, perhaps they should.
Google is making steps in expanding in the physical sense. This from Google:
"MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 10, 2006 – Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced plans to open an office on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University (ASU) as part of its continued efforts to build out a Phoenix-area operation."
"The new Google office will be primarily focused on engineering, operations and IT support functions and is part of its worldwide effort to build engineering centers in locations where there are great engineers. "
"Google's Tempe office will offer all the world-class workplace amenities that Google has become known for such as outstanding healthcare benefits, free lunches and competitive compensation packages. The company continues to look for a range of new employees to support a variety of business and technology operations."
Our question is why not Virginia? Virginia Tech, would make a great place for Google to set up a campus. Perhaps, I could sneak up there for a free lunch.
