Inside Google

 

Ever want to take a look inside Google???

 


Google Solar Array
 Mountain View, California 

Today, Google employs 20,223 people around the world, receiving a resume every 25 seconds from eager job-seekers, hiring an average of nine new employees a day.
 

A full-size replica of Virgin Atlantic ‘s Spaceship One (space tourist vehicle) hangs in the reception area.

Exercise

To work off the pounds, and the stress . . .
 

Google has its own state-of-the-art gym . . . offering weight-training and a host of exercise machines, rowing machines, lockers and shower rooms, and two swim-in-place wave pools.

Other perks include free haircuts, dry cleaning and laundry, child care, car services, chiropractors and five onsite doctors available for employee check-ups; all free of charge.
 

Perhaps the most unusual bonus of all… employees can bring their dogs to work with them and keep the four-legged canine in their offices.

We already know that working for Google has certain advantages, but, believe me, this giant of a search engine takes the welfare of its employees seriously as shown by this decompression (stress) capsule that is impermeable to sound and light….

Perhaps most significantly, Google was the first company to use the new Bloombox, the innovative power source being developed in the world today, which is like a very skinny battery that always runs. It is fed oxygen on one side, and fuel on the other. The two combine within the cell to create a chemical reaction that produces electricity, with no need for burning or combustion, and no need for power lines from an outside source.http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/02/18/60minutes/main6221135.shtml
