One day trip. 24 hours. Really crazy but that was great. I barely slept and woke up at 2am to catch a flight at 5am and to be back 24 hours later in Chicago at 2:30am!
I was in standby with American Airlines as our regional director worked there for more than 25 years. Being in Standby is great but it can be stressful as I had to go to the desk and not on the check-in machine. I would save lots time if it could be allowed.
I made it safely to Burbank and I could feel the excitement from everybody to have the opportunity to visit the building and learn more about the company. Their offices are great, lots of space and they can work from outside. The concept is similar to Google or Facebook offices: lots of space, possibility to work from outside, lots of fun/activities areas, free food… The architecture has been created to make the employees comfortable, happy and to push them to be creative!
They have several water fountains all around the campus, the guide told us it’s because the building is surrounded by big routes and the fountains helps to make the atmosphere quiet.
I won’t be against the idea to move out to California and work in these amazing offices.
Over to you, where would you like to work if you could choose?
