The Offices of Today’s Leading Net Firms

Every wonder what the offices of some of today’s leading Web 2.0 companies looks like? Well, Charl Norman of Bandwidth Blog managed to snare office photos of ten leading Internet companies.

An office is the mirror of the company and whatโ€™s going on inside, the perfect way to communicate with your employees, customers and investors. Hence why so many say, your office is your face. Knowing it, we decided to make a list of the most known internet companies and see what they have to offer on the inside.

Some of the offices (like Tocquigny) looks very fancy, while others (like GigaOM) look pretty bare. It reminds me of my office. My favorite office is one from Songbird (see photos below). I need to get me an office like that!

      Nice, but all that brick just spells potential disaster here in California, where the ground can shake your socks off in a moment…

      1. Sascha says:

        believe me, bricks are ok…
        even when you have earthquakes going on..
        i used to live in Taipei for a while and they are having way more earthquakes than over here in cali

    3. Etienne Teo says:

      It’s a nice cosy messy office that i would not mind working for.

  2. enovator says:

    Cooooooooollllllll ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ™„ Looks more like a restaurant than an office. :mrgreen: ๐Ÿ˜†

  3. Post a pic of your office John! :mrgreen:

    1. I thought I’ve seen his setup before…can’t seem to find the post though…

    2. Zac Johnson says:

      I love seeing offices where other people works. It’s funny how much money is produced out of some small one bedroom offices! :mrgreen:

  4. Liked Tocquigny, that is sweet. Love to work in an environment like that, that is if I weren’t working at home.

  5. Manik says:

    This ain’t that bad. When I started my career as a web developer I was placed in the small stock room, because I was working for a retail store located in Harvard University campus. Later when the business picked we had our office. And I am glad I have gone through all those steps, learning lot, to make six figure income now a days.

  6. Jack says:

    Those look pretty slick! Dual monitors and a beast of a Desktop are something that I’m working towards, not to mention landing a job at one of those firms!

  7. Anthony says:

    I’ll be honest. One of those swanky beautifully designed and feng shui’d offices is something I’ve wanted for years. The reality of it happening at the moment are slimmer than a sideways supermodel.

    Thanks for the post John, I am now even greener with envy :mrgreen:

  8. We are the kings of our own kingdom ๐Ÿ™‚ I got an idea, letโ€™s say on a fix date each one of us here display a picture of our office. Lets say on coming auspicious 25th December. What say?

    1. on our respective blog off course.

      1. Hmmm… I am down… my office is 2 feet from my house. Lol…

  9. I’ve always wandered how some of these offices looked.

  10. I am going to get myself a posh office. Let me check if my bank will lend me some money!

  11. Marco says:

    Looks pretty much like the place, I used to work in before my current job.

  12. Damn, that’s a really nice environment to work in. Really easy on the eyes.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. Maher Saleh says:

    Pretty cool john it looks like a restaurant any way it is cool ๐Ÿ˜†

  14. thewild1 says:

    that is an pretty tite setup they got there

  15. EarnBlogger says:

    Cool pictures. They looks informal. This is good for working ๐Ÿ˜† Do post pics of your office! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Mike Saf says:

    Really cool offices. I’m working towards a bad boy like that.

  17. John, what is you office looks like?

  18. Lol… I rather stick to my apartment unless the office had an ocean view then it’d be worth working at an office. But I do like the sweet double monitor setups. I think I am getting tired of my 2 laptops.

  19. Hey Cool! ๐Ÿ™„ Seldom get to see desks arranged like that. And I love the brick walls.. Haha … I’m crazy… ๐Ÿ˜†

  20. Contest Beat says:

    Damn, some do look sweet!

  21. charl says:

    Excellent thanks for the mention John!
    Songbird was my pick as well ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. i wish i have my own office like the above shown in the future. :mrgreen:

  23. i wish i have such a nice office in near future. :mrgreen:

  24. Awsome :mrgreen: Good post John ๐Ÿ˜›

  25. hts says:

    Nice places to work :). Oh well, “leading net firms” – it is something normal, methinks, to provide an optimal environment to their employers.

  26. Dom says:

    I like the decor… looks a lot less clinical than most offices. But I’d rather have desks grouped together with people facing each other. That way you encourage direct communication and eye contact and end up with a much more social atmosphere.

  27. Etienne Teo says:

    I really like the google office concept. but this concept seems great as well.

  28. I like the Mac sitting in the floor :mrgreen:
    Hey John, thanks for stopping by Skiing at Home! I’m sure it’s because I registered for TTZ Ad’s, but I still appreciate it! I also would like to see a pic of the John Chow office.

  29. Twitter have the right attitude, always nice to have some plants in the office – I have Orchids, although I did use to sell them so I’m biased!

  30. the cafe house style office looks inviting.

  31. I find the Tocquigny’s office way much prettier, seems like they applied that professional and serious look of a office to 100%, LinkedIn has some nice and colorful office too.

  32. David Savage says:

    I like Linkedin and Skype’s offices, they look modern and spacey. NetVibes looks kinda crunched, i’d hate to see the full staff working in there ๐Ÿ˜•

  33. lionstarr says:

    Sorry, have to bring in something off topic. Where did the batch-posts go? You know, this ones about I review John Chow, he puts 10 Links in one post… Cause I’m waiting for the post since June…

  34. Steven says:

    a good idea for making a place of work comfortable is to add plants. The Ferrari factory has a forest in the middle. It makes people feel better. On my blog I’m growing a garden while i grow a blog. Cool combo! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  35. Mike Huang says:

    The office looks pretty messy to me…but talk about how much traffic you sent bandwidthblog ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    -Mike

    1. yeah. the office is preety messy, but they all like messing up with tech gadgets, Geek Freek Dude they are.

  36. Fat Man says:

    nice offices. mine is my living room. lol.

  37. Zac Johnson says:

    I’ve been working on my own office redesign for the past few weeks. Stupid flooring guy is going on vacation for 2 weeks now!

  38. hts says:

    my “office” is my room currently…2 tables, one for the computer and another one for writing stuff. Well, the room is quite big, but still it looks messy. I’m quite neglecting order and stuff like that – I just throw things around (clothes, notebooks, books, etc)

  39. Handbag Girl says:

    I love their style a lot but it seems a little dark for me. But I love the way the save the enery by using natural light in their office.

  40. Very high tech, 2 monitors in every desk, damn thats company must have loot of cash..

  41. Hmmm, that SongBird one is quite nice. Nice and simple, but not plain.
