Google New York
NewYork, NY 10011 Google’s second-biggest office is in NewYork’s Chelsea neighborhood. Engineers work on Google Drive, Search, AdWords, and Maps, and the large sales team works with clients that include media companies and ad agencies.
The 2.8-million-square-foot building in Chelsea fills an entire city block. It boasts not just work spaces but cafeterias, gyms, massage rooms and massive outdoor terraces. There’s lots of different work environments for folks to avail themselves of,” says William Floyd, Google’s New York head of external affairs. The California-based company arrived in the city just as the tech bubble was bursting. At the time, Google was young and looking to get into a business New York is known for: advertising. “Our growth here has been slow and steady, and I would almost say it was accidental,” Floyd says. “We started in 2000, thinking we might have a business model based on advertising. That kind of took off.” Google’s founders were initially skeptical they would be able to find the kind of engineers that were readily available in Silicon Valley. But today, Google employs more than 7,000 people here, half of them engineers. Many have no desire to work in California.
