Pinterest, the content sharing service provider has recently shifted its headquarters from the Palo Alto to a new spacious location at 808, Brannan Street in the San Francisco’s SoMa district. The new office is composed of two interconnected buildings. The smaller one is currently occupied by the employees while the larger one is under maintenance for a better working environment.
Is it an office or is it a home? What is it?! The office has been designed to feel as comfortable as home. Everyone has a different method to relax, for the social media giant, it looks like work and comfort are the Zen at Pinterest. Pinterest has hired a company that offers commercial cleaning services to make sure the entire facility is kept clean for their workers to promote a healthy work environment. This is definitely a goal that many people have for their office. Especially if you are working from home, there is a thin line between making your office comfortable to work effectively to then having a room that you would rather not work in because there’s too much going on. Why not take some inspiration from the people at Pinterest to create your dream office. With the help of companies like Office Monster, you won’t be far from achieving a similar aesthetic. It is also important to add a personal touch too. Just keep this all in mind when you do decide to redecorate your office.
Although many people think that Pinterest does not focus on engineering, but the inside culture is purely engineering-driven. The design and the interior of the building looks like heaven for engineers, from recreational areas to working areas.
“One of the things I love about the company culture is the work-life balance. I typically get to the office early and run with my colleagues before work, or go climbing or do yoga at the end of the day. We also have a lot of fun after work together. For example, we recently held an open mic night where employees sang, told jokes, and played music.”
Tracy Chou, Software Engineer at Pinterest
The building features some closed meeting rooms for those private discussions which require isolation and silence from the outside commotion.
The software engineers at Pinterest are paid handsomely, with the average pay over $100,000. Management employees are paid more. The rewards of the hard work and dedication in the company are reaped instantly as the chance to work in an encouraging and cool environment like theirs is a reward in itself. The new office is designed to provide more motivation and inspiration to the employees so that they can give their best to keep Pinterest in competition with other social networks. The employees are quite satisfied with the work culture, environment and salaries.
Let’s see if the new dig brings luck to the Pinterest team. //pic credits http://innov8tiv.com/inside-office-pinterest-awesome-workplace-photos/
