Visit to Microsoft

March 27, 2005

I went up to visit a friend of mine who works at Microsoft in Reading this weekend, and got a tour of the campus. I must admit that it’s probably the nicest working environment that i’ve ever seen, there are rest/play areas with pool tables and (obviously) lots of X-boxes. All the offices are so light and airy, and all members of staff are given the same work environment despite the hierarchy. There’s free drinks and snacks in fridges dotted about, and a restaraunt which i’m told is excellent. Outside there’s a gorgeous lake with a putting green, and the whole place is wifi connected, meaning that people can wander around with their tablet PC’s working.
Thanks for the tour mate.
