Chew on this cubicle-dwellers

Is it an adventure theme park….a children’s nursery….a health spa? No, it's Google’s new European engineering HQ in Zurich.

The 'office' space features meeting 'pods' in the style of Swiss chalets and igloos, fireman poles to allow easy access between floors and a slide to ensure that people can get to the cafeteria as quickly as possible Other areas include a games room, a library in the style of an English country house and an aquarium where over-worked Googlers can lie in a bath full of red foam and stare at fish.

Cubicle-dwellers in less enlightened companies can take an envy-inducing video tour of Google's new wacky office courtesy of the BBC.

Now, where did I put that CV?
