Facebook will take care of your dog, but not your kid
Facebook has invested $120 million into a sprawling housing compound near its Menlo Park, Calif., offices because, as the Wall Street Journal explains, “One of Facebook’s corporate goals is to take care of as many aspects of its employees’ lives as possible."
This is great news if, first and foremost, you love the idea of never really leaving work ever, but also if you're a fan of sports bars, woodworking classes and convenient access to bicycle repair, all of which are featured amenities in the 394-unit compound.
And while the built-in doggy daycare will make sure your pets are well attended to while you're plugging away at work, your human child is on his or her own, since the complex doesn't feature daycare for human babies.
Nuts to you, parents of Facebook! Get a dog next time!
