why I love Gmail!

For those of you out there who still use old-timey email systems, here's a great little video that explains what's cool about Gmail.

(It also demonstrates why Google is a company I'm tempted to work for...)

You do NOT want to work got Google. Trust me on this one. I live here :) That company is now the WORST for internal politics and treating you like children. I've had more than a few friends get jobs there and then be like "f this". :)

Interesting! It was recently voted the #1 place to work in the world.

Ok, the *benefits* and perks are good. I hear the food is great. BUT the actual working atmosphere from what I've been told from more than a few people sucks ass now. But hey, that's just me :)

I think those #1 places to work things are based on employee benefits and perks and not so much "what is it like day to day".

What about the on-campus masseuse? The herd of Segway scooters? The party atmosphere? The pets allowed on campus?

I think you're missing my point :) Sure that's all GREAT, but there is also the under the radar politicking and actual workflow processes.

Or you could just be being sarcastic.

Well, I was being a smarty-pants, but still: There is no organization that does not have politics and other issues.
