All those choices of cereal probably totally makes up for working like 83 hours per day.

Forget the video games and the ping-pong tables and the cafateria for chrissakes MOAR RENDER FARM!

This site looks kind of hinky to me and at least some of the pictures (and I suspect all) are ripped off from elsewhere.

Shoot. You're totally right. Mods, feel free to delete.

The main entry is what you are seeing the most of in the pictures. This area is not a break room. The space is like the Town Center. All mail is delivered to mailboxes there. Food is there. The main theater is there. The idea is to have a communal space for everyone.

In the blocked off work areas, are the cubes. People are basically allowed to do what ever they want in these areas, as long as it's not dangerous.

The render farm is a narrow room with endless numbers of 1RU Dell servers.

The catwalk bridge is the funniest part IMHO, but not shown in the photos. When I get up there, I love walking it. I wanted to steal a Razor Scooter from a cube and ride it across, but we're always in a hurry.

Not pictured: miles of ethernet cable bundles, executives sitting in hot tubs of liquefied $100 bills, acne.

I was kind of hoping to see MASSIVE COMPUTER BANKS where every scale on Nemo's body was lovingly rendered for hours on end by CPUs so powerful and complex that they thought about taking over the world but decided it was too pedestrian a goal, and instead decided to work towards spiritual enlightenment.

I, for one, am shocked by the use of child labor revealed by the fourth photo.
