These cubby holes provide a semi-private area for employees to take a breather or break up the day at their desks.
Employees have the choice of working at a standup desk throughout the day if they choose to. It is not uncommon to see them standing on a balance board or mini elliptical machine while at their standing desks.
You can often find a group of employees huddled around the office foosball table during lunch or playing a quick game before leaving for the night.

The office features several glass divided rooms that can be reserved for meetings, working or making phone calls. They range in size and can accommodate up to eight people.
