Corporate Cafeterias: Another reason to love Google...

Carb Lover | May 1, 200501:44 AM

Thought some of you might be interested in the SJ Mercury News article linked below. This was the front page headliner today (Sat). Basically a review of cafeterias in 6 major Silicon Valley companies: BEA Systems, Broadcom, Sun Microsystems, Oracle, Ebay, and Google. Go to "related links" on the right margin for menus and a quick summary.

Google outshined the others, receiving 4 stars (out of 4). Food sounds diverse and fresh. The amazing thing is that it's all free to employees, and the cafeteria is open for both lunch and dinner. Employees are allowed to make a reservation for a guest twice a month, and I found it amusing that they compared the demand to get in to that of the French Laundry. I guess Google knows how to keep the troops happy and productive...

So for you techie hounds who are looking to make a move, keep this in mind. I imagine we might have some hounds who work and eat at these places, or perhaps someone has been lucky enough to know someone at Google.
