A world within a small city! Praiseworthy or spooky???

August 10th, 2014 por

A world within a small city is life at  Google’s headquarters, in Mountain View, California.

There, I found myself an “old lady” amidst  long hairy (or not) youngsters, wearing shorts, slippers and t-shirts, speaking different idioms,  sharing knowledge and expertise: geeks (what an interesting word to define these kids)!  Must admit I envied these guys and,  wished I were younger, because I would definitely re-think over Medicine or Machines! Nothing in common or maybe, too much, indeed! But what really fascinated me was the company respect towards its employees.

Absolutely fantastic how Google  praises for its employees,  although there’s a common popular  saying, something like (my son is going to kill me, because this might not be a 100% accurate phrasing)  “google 15” , which means that  once one starts working there he/she will eventually put on about 15 pounds. The reason maybe explained by the many restaurants where different cuisines can be found and the great amount of available snacks, drinks and even a nice coffee place, all available  for the employees and the eventual allowed guests (yes, they are allowed to bring in guests with discretion) at cost “zero”. Never mind thinking it’s junk food, because it is not!

Moreover, strolling through the mini-world of Google, one can run into several gyms, volley courts, free bikes, pools and even a vegetable garden,  all there to serve Google’s employees. But if you think this is not enough, there are massage rooms, sleeping/resting areas and for those willing to learn something else other than just softwares and electronics, there are key lectures on different hot topics, including “cellular  and molecular developments on diabetes treatment” given by top scientists in the field.  Hum….who knows I could be of some help, after all  medicine and nutrition are my small world!

Finally, and this definitely the best to me: dogs are allowed to go to work with theirs owners! I just can dream of  how great it would be to have my adorable beagle Nick with me all the time!

Well, well, a skeptical one would say paradise does not exist but, I would  certainly reply by saying “respect towards quality of life is something the company highly praises” and I got the feeling my son has fallen for the company!

I am absolutely overwhelmed with what I saw and learnt of this company! Computer genius have been able to be social/health promoters while changing the world within their boundaries! They have also made the world smaller for sure! No wonder they spook so many of us….. am I being checked right now? Maybe yes, but who cares????? After all I have nothing to hide!!!

Congrats Google leaders!!! After all, let’s “google” the world!!!!
