2018/05/24 Visiting 4 of the many Google Manila Offices
π 2018-05-24 01:01 in Google, Philippines
Google actually has 7 offices in Manila, after landing there, Jennifer, Arturo and I went to see 4 of them. The contrast was pretty interesting between the GOGO (Google Owned, Google Operated) building and the GOVO ones (Vendor Operated).
We went to see NETP (2 buildings), WCC, and UBT1 which had 10 different floors. The facilities folks were super nice and helpful, they answered my questions before arriving and recommended which buildings to visit.

The vendor buildings were interesting in that they had nap rooms apparently due to staff being there 24x7 to do support, and they also had lots of lockers maybe due to vendors not allowed to bring recording devices inside the building (which includes phones), they were probably also helpful for people who bring scooter helmets which may not fit at their small desk.
We went to see NETP (2 buildings), WCC, and UBT1 which had 10 different floors. The density was also quite high, but when we came to visit not too many people were working, it was probably a quiet time.

Some pictures:
