Google has constantly been named the best company to work for, and with good reason. The perks and facilities given to its employees, especially at its ‘Googleplex’ campus in California, are everyone’s envy.
It feeds its employees three gourmet meals a day for free, on top of other crazy perks like yoga classes and massages.
Some time back, Business Insider was granted a tour of the campus and came back with these photos.
The Google campus is located in a quiet town called Mountain View
Here’s the main front entrance to the three buildings at the heart of the campus. This spot was featured in the movie about Google called “The Internship,” shot at the Googleplex.
Google’s color scheme is primary colors, used on everything, like these free campus bikes. Employees can use them to ride around the ‘Plex. Don’t want to ride? You can let these valets fetch and park your car for you.
Here’s where they invented Google Glass.
Here’s where they create the Android operating system. There’s a statue for every version of Android, all named after sweet things to eat.
This is a massive Android statue peeking out of the Android building. Its eyes glow red when the sun sets, so it’s kinda freaky looking at night.
New Google employees are called “Nooglers” (pronounced “NEWglers”) This is the Noogler statue dedicated to them.
Their gardens also have tables and chairs as a quiet meditative spot for employees.
This is perhaps the most famous, familiar view of the Google campus, the outdoor cafeteria with colorful umbrellas.
A lot of employees commute every day to the ‘Plex. Electric cars are everywhere and so are electric charging stations.
The parking lot was filled with Tesla electric cars. Rows of them.
This was one of the few indoor pics we were allowed to take in the Chrome building. Note the Chrome artwork on the walls. This is Caesar Sengupta, VP of Chromebooks with a Pixel notebook.
A ‘nap pod’, where employees can work or sleep.
There are multiple fitness centers on campus.
Here’s one of the micro-kitchens located everywhere. Employees don’t have to bring their own lunch, much less cook it. They get breakfast, lunch and dinner for free at various campus restaurants.
