global sales conference - google style
all in all, the conference is done really well. the logistics are coordinated well, the equipment is top notch, and of course, there's tons of food and drink to be had. the content is quite interesting, but i'm not allowed to share most of it (sorry :p)
while at the conference, i've gotten some new perspective and had some time to reflect upon the factors driving my decision to leave microsoft for google. here's what i came up with:
- i wanted to work at a company that focuses on disruptive technologies.
- i wanted work to be fun.
- i wanted to work on stuff i thought was interesting.
not to mention that the company has some cool perks and definitely knows how to party. free food, open bars, lots of swag, company ski trip... they sure pile on the goodies :)
