When a company that helps you connect with professionals, and get jobs in companies you see yourself working at, turns into a desirable place to work at itself, it’s a deadly combination. And professional networking site Linkedin with its new office is doing just that. After we took you on a tour of the fun Mumbai office of Facebook, here’s another Fortune500 company showing us how it’s done.
The office is spread across two floors and over 230k sqft and is located in the Global tech park, outer ring road. ( Psst, Google will soon be a neighbour here with its new office.)
The office has all the trappings of a world class international space, with art decco furniture, state of the art systems, and of course its fair share of Indian kitsch.
Work can become fun when you have nice chilling corners like this.
While the meeting rooms at Facebook are named after Bombay cocktails, the meeting rooms at Linkedin are named after Indian sports like Kho Kho and Gilli Danda.
Needless to say there’s free food and a place that looks like that to enjoy it at.
While the office is largely colourful, Linkedin retains its signature blue with this classy meeting room.
Other than that bed overlooking the Bangalore skyline, the Linkedin employees get a gym, shower rooms, and TT and foosball tables.
A green landscaped logo of Linkedin adds a nice touch.

This office is likely to make you want to update your…Linkedin profile.
