Facebook Holiday Party NYC

New York City is home to some of the most innovative and high tech companies in the world. This past December, we had the opportunity to explore Facebook’s insanely SWEET office.

Most large work spaces and offices are designed with cubicles and plain walls - Facebook is NOTHING like that. Everything about this office was fascinating. It’s every employee’s dream office; no two rooms or floors are alike, you’re fed three meals a day with an abundance of options.  Here are just a few of the SWEETEST things I saw while at Facebook NY!

  1. Nestled inside the world of Facebook is Sweet, sweet Instagram. The North side of the 7th floor belongs to Instagram’s programmers and consultants.  Since the holidays were just around the corner, we treated the Instagram team to a hot chocolate bar infused with their choice of  Sugaire® Cotton Candy (Classic, Sweet Peppermint or Sea Salt Caramel).

2. Micro Kitchens are conveniently located around each floor, stocked with a plethora of your favorite snacks and drinks. Each micro kitchen included a snack cart, three refrigerators full of every drink imaginable, and a latte machine for coffee and tea. My favorite snack was Peeled Snacks Organic Dried Mango with a FOUND Elderflower Sparkling Water. SO YUMMY!!

3. Motivational. Posters. EVERYWHERE. Literally everywhere I turned there was a poster telling me to continue doing what I love and I loved it!! I was introduced to many new quotes, along with some of my favorites. Positivity was all around! Along with the motivational posters, each office and conference room was named something hilarious. There was a “Pokemon” office and a “Leggo my Eggo” conference room, to name a few.

4. “The Weekly Push” - this is a weekly update posted inside the stalls of each bathroom stall that gives insight on specific Q & A’s, How To’s and updates on how Facebook is doing as a whole company. Besides the articles on the stall doors, these restrooms are DECKED OUT! Essentials such as sanitary items, deodorant, toothbrushes, floss and mouthwash are provided in each of the restrooms. Forgetting something essential at home is so annoying, but Facebook has helped employees by providing everything that they may need to be comfortable in the office.

5. My favorite thing about FacebookNY’s office is none other than the FOOD. Gourmet food is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Desimone's is a cafeteria set up like a school cafeteria, but with a more adult feel to it. Cafeteria tables are set up and employees actually sit next to each other and socialize. The chef’s prepare food for all dietary restrictions. There is also an extravagant salad bar with any salad item you can imagine, a make-your-own sandwich bar that ends with panini grills and even an ice cream cart filled with your favorite flavors of organic ice cream!

Every Thursday from 5pm-7pm a happy hour mixer happens in the cafeteria. The awesome event staff that organizes this event, features different vendors with yummy snacks and treats every week! This happy hour happened to be SWEETER than any normal happy hour, because we were in attendance with a Hotpoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar bar and a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy hot chocolate infusion bar! While all of the employees were enjoying their Chinese takeout inspired dinners and taking pictures in the photo booth, they were stopping by our tables for some popcorn and hot chocolate!

My team and I had an unforgettable experience at the Facebook office. Our clients, Carolyn Nagler & Daniel Stokes, took such great care of us and we can’t wait to be back again to make Facebook a little bit sweeter!!
