|[jobs] Google recon II: into the 'plex!
||[Jun. 9th, 2014|01:38 pm]
Turns out my Facebook friend list is full of lurking tech-industry workers. A friend who I know via the Berkeley programming contest got in touch with me and invited me for lunch and a tour of the GooglePlex today.
First impressions: Goddamn, everyone is so young! It's like a college campus. Only more crowded! It is a hive of open-plan offices heavily populated with things like: (free) cafes and cafeterias, nap pods, gyms, volleyball courts, experimental aircraft (there is a spaceship 1 prototype hanging in one of the buildings), ball pits, pool tables, etc.
I'm happy that I'm doing reasonably well with jet lag, having managed to immediately adopt a local sleep schedule. Still a bit tired, though, which will be a small handicap in tomorrow's "ruthless grilling."
