Facebook has to be one of the coolest places to work on Earth! Just look at the pics of their new headquarters in Menlo Park, CA, which is where Sun Microsystems used to be based out of. Their former place was back in Palo Alto, CA and their new 57-acre campus rivals that of Google’s awesome work environment with tons of open work spaces for its 2,000 employees plus extra room for expansion.
There are numerous colorful chairs and couches to get creative on, private telephone booths for employees to take calls, message boards that double as art where employees can show off their graffiti abilities, a modern cafeteria for employees to get their grub on, cozy personal conference rooms. To foster collaboration and creative thinking, the employees work side-by-side at long, undivided tables instead of small cubicles. Like other Facebook offices around the globe, the new building features overhead heating and cooling ductwork that’s exposed, with power and data cables hanging from the ceiling to individual work spaces. While it’s still a work in process, total completion of Facebook’s new headquarters is scheduled to be done by the end of the year. They even want to create a West Campus across Willow Road from the main campus by 2014 (pending approval).
