Cool work spaces
While fluorescent lighting and gray cubicles surrounded by dull beige walls are what many might imagine when they think of a typical office, not all companies subscribe to that floor plan.
As a way to highlight how to use and design office space in a whole new way that helps foster creativity for employees, career community Glassdoor is showing off some of the world's most unique and fascinating office spaces. The offices were selected from photos sent by employees around the globe.
