I recently visited my old friend Chris who works at Google. We first met on Craigslist when I put out an ad to hire someone to help build my blog network website back in 2009.
Chris took me on a two hour bike tour at what literally felt like a college campus with over 60 buildings. There’s all you can eat food from every type of cuisine. There are tennis courts, a soccer field, a wave pool, and freshly squeezed orange juice when you’re thirsty. Massages by appointment, daycare, and dry cleaning are all at your disposal. You basically never need to leave the Googleplex, which is exactly what management wants.
My time at Google reminded me about how much fun work could be.
