A visit to Google's mothership

After finishing management meetings in Sausalito, Trish, Frank and Naoki headed to Mountain View to visit the Google mothership. Our client Devin was nice enough to give us a rock star tour. We quickly realized that it’s no wonder Google is so successful — they’ve created an environment so idyllic that no one ever needs to leave!

View overlooking the outdoor dining area. We saw at least 3 cafeterias. Naoki was psyched they had sushi.
