according to Globe Investor, no two Google offices are the same, but there are common elements of shared spaces, cubes, yurts, eggs and “huddles,” video games, pool tables and pianos, cafes and little kitchens stocked with healthy food, and whiteboards. Employees have the technology to be able to work from home, but are still encouraged to show up at the office. Half of the space is dedicated to collaborative environments, with white boards and laptop plugs sprinkled through the office for spontaneous brainstorming. Local themes are used, such as the jungle theme in Australia, or the rock-climbing wall in the Boulder Colorado office. Google likes “urban cores” with pre-existing buildings with character, in neighborhoods with amenities like restaurants, nightclubs, public transit and housing.
