I’ve always heard it was important to have a good work environment. One where you could relax, feel comfortable and let the creative energy flow. I myself have a large window overlooking the sea, which is nice (but slightly annoying at times when I would rather go for a swim than work).
However, my workplace pales in comparison with Googles Zurich office. Mee too want a pool table and a firemans pole! Goddamit!
On the other hand – it could be worse.
Will now go and pressure bosses, perhaps I could get a pole like that installed. Somewhere. Ouch.
