Google’s Tel Aviv Office Is Ridiculous

Known for its opulence, Google does its Tel Aviv employees a solid

(Itay Sikolskii)

We’ve all heard the tall tales about what goes on at Google offices across the world: Free filet mignon lunches with pearl-handled knives and vanilla pudding crushed straight from the stalks of French Polynesia. And what of the free massages and yoga classes and live Coldplay concerts?

Offices that are left exhilarated by the prospects of free misordered Chinese food thumb our collective noses at such silliness. Who would ever want to work at such a ridiculous place? Where you work in robes while servants wash your clothes and having work meetings in milk baths. I used to say Not me! Never me! until I saw pictures of the Google offices in Tel Aviv.

There are trees, picnic tables, and wild design all over the place. It’s a touch cluttered in spots, but overall really nice. The office is being used for sales, marketing, and engineering. It takes up seven of eight floors of the building.

Can anybody teach me how to code?

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

No automated chick-pea grinder?
