Last summer, my family and I managed to get ourselves a tour of the Googleplex.
We got to go inside this office, which is where the legal department is housed.
We also had some free lunch while we were in there.
The stories about Google are all true. Bike stands are located practically everywhere and you can just
ride them all across campus. Pets are allowed and you can wear anything you want.
There is a car wash, a place to do laundry, access to food 24/7 in certain parts of the campus, free
transportation, free wifi for Google employees, and a huge (but overpriced) Google store.
They give you everything you need, but they also work you to death. It’s a fair trade if you ask me.
They also have a building with a lawn display of the different versions of Android,
which I thought was really cute. That made it my favorite part of the complex. I apologize for the
photo quality. A guard stopped us while we were taking pictures. Apparently you are not allowed to
wander around the campus without your employee sponsor present.
