  • 10 Coolest offices that make you run to work on Mondays

No matter you’re currently employed or are just looking for a job, productivity and work satisfaction are a key to meet business goals. But let me ask you something when was your last time of super-productivity? When you felt that great passion to the work, reached top performance or lost a sense of time while working. Yesterday, last week, month or never? In fact, the average person spends 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime; the people, little things, the environment that surround each of us daily play a great part in our lives, even if don’t mention it.

If the first thought that appears in your head after the alarm rang is “Ohh, Gosh! Today again…”, that’s a first sign your working place might not suit you. We all know the phrase “Do what you love” but the option rarely comes up with where you do it.

All big companies came up to the idea of creative, well-designed workplace to grad the brightest talent, fuel originality and promote cheerful attitude, and it became a key to their success and innovation.

Here is the list of 10 cool offices that would make you run to work not only on Mondays. Check it out and be ready to get jealous!

Guess, what is a nickname of the Apple’s headquarters? The answer is “spaceship”. Steve Jobs’ idea was to make it a shuttle to work and he successfully did it.

It’s the whole separate country.

4. Dropbox
