that is what we are accomplishing here.
Yes, it’s probably fun as hell for the team to get to come down and mess with my head. It may be the most elaborate and creative team-building exercise of all time.
But what we are doing here, more than anything, is showing just how incredible the culture of the organization is. Not because of my suffering, but by showing everyone that this is the pinnacle of workplace culture. It’s already well known for the perks, salaries, benefits, and fun office environment.
I think my enthusiasm and vision for how I think work should be has raised the bar. It’s already the #1 ranked workplace in the world. We are turning it into something akin to being a rock star or professional athlete.
Right now, it’s the dream place to work for any college student with a degree in CS. After this, it’s going to be middle school and high school kids dreaming about working there. Instead of being a haven for the people who were already interested in pursuing a career in technology, it’s going to make people want to pursue a career in technology.
It’s all about perception. We are turning Google from a fantastic workplace into a lifestyle.
