Fabulous Google office
Today in Moscow opened a new office of Google. In developing his concept of participation of all interested persons. The idea was to create a Google office with a Russian soul. As a result, the choice fell on Russian folk tales, and favorite childhood cartoons and films. Entire office, including negotiation, decorated in the style of famous works. For example, you can sit on a replica of "12 chairs" in the negotiation of the same name, or spinning the wheel in "Vrungel". Amateur ornithologists can count birds in the "38 parrots," and if you wanted to relax, you can go for a massage in one of two specially equipped rooms for this purpose.
Reception desk made of brick.
The hall is a table tennis on the wall visible screen, it can play a video deck.
The office smells very strongly Rus, Doha round of entrance into the conference room is decorated with carved architraves.
Employees can play at any time, day is not normalized.
After the game of table football can take the cotton candy and go to work.
And you can go for a horizontal bar.
All meeting rooms with a subject.
A small meeting room "The Dragon-Gorynich"
"38 Parrots", they are really 38.
Recreation area for staff here are excellent come to mind for new ideas.

Favorite area for employees - Lukomorye. Here you can sit under a green oak tree with a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Here in the woods is a small library with a soft and comfortable sofas and shelves of books on various subjects.
Cafe for the employees.
The office is open round the clock, all food is free. In the fridge there's even a beer. Bans on alcohol there, you can just sit in the morning and the booze in the bar, but no one does.
Guitar for the mood.
There is even a current machine with soda.
There were, of course, no Memorial Solovetsk Antiquities - huts on chicken legs, which like to gather to discuss the project engineers Google.
And here is the chicken feet house.
Dining Samobranka. For staff provides free breakfasts and lunches. Every Friday, all Google employees intend to Samobranka to share news with each other or discuss the most vivid and important events of the week.
"On our first day in new office work was not possible - all considered peregovorki with fairy tales were all the sofas in the queue (especially, of course, on the couch-translator of NEECHAVO), was evaluated in the shower" Moidodyr "and attempted to try all the dishes in the new dining room. Someone said: "I always thought that Moscow can not make the same cool office, as in America or in Zurich, and now look - got even better!" - Anna Kondratiev, Software Developer
For breakfast - blini.
Left of the entrance to the area where the engineers are sitting. You can not shoot there, some secrets!
Now the Moscow office has about 100 employees.
I liked the attitude of the staff. During heat waves and smog in Moscow, the company paid for everyone from families a hotel near the office to make it easier to go to work. Also, employees can fly on time to work in any of the Google offices around the world! All employees have health insurance, it affects not only the employee but also his family members, such as his wife gave birth to some of the staff free of charge for insurance. At last the new year, all employees received at Nexus One. This year the gifts will be even better, but it's a surprise.
Each employee prepares their working place independently.
Each employee can choose their own equipment on which he wants to work. Someone is working on a laptop, someone needs 2 or 3 monitors.
There is a room with a massage chair. Generally in Google very loyatnoe relation to staff time. No matter where and how you work, what do you do during working hours, you can come at any time, you can leave work at home, play and sit in cafes all day though. The main index is the work done, rather than the amount of time staff spent in the office, just so new ideas and projects of Google.
For the employees have a massage room, massage therapist works in an office.
Showers for staff.
Of the 100 people who send their CVs, only one is in.
