Google Adds a Half Pipe to the Company PerksBy: Chris Gabbard - March 26, 2012
Google has often been described by employees and outsiders as one of the coolest places to work.
The company has consistently made Fortune’s “Best Companies to Work For” list over the years, ranking number four last year. The Mountain View company is famous for offering free food, free laundry, a game center, and a climbing wall, among other perks, to all of it’s employees. Adding to this list, employees can now spend their breaks on the companies very own half pipe.
In this video you can see the office through the window in the background, as Director of Product marketing, Brett Crosby, tests out the half pipe.
Google’s revenue was up a whopping 20% last year. That equated to a 10% pay raise to everyone that works there. Some people have such a hard work environment.
