Spotlight on an office - Johannesburg
By firstname.lastname@example.org on May 18, 2012
South Africa is by far one of the most beautiful countries in the world and the Oracle office in Johannesburg is a true reflection of that. Unfortunately we may not be as fortunate as our Cape Town colleagues who can see Table Mountain (one of the wonders of the world) from outside their office window but that does not take away from the charm we get to experience in Johannesburg.
The office is based in Woodmead which is a few kilometres from Sandton, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Africa. The office is also positioned in a way that every car that drives down the N1 highway can get a glimpse of this magnificent building. I find myself telling interns when interviewing, “Yes, it is the building next to the highway with big red bold letters”. The building consists of two floors which are complemented by modern finishes that never fail to impress even the most discerning tastes. The smell of good coffee coming from the canteen is inviting throughout the year. Not to worry though, should you over indulge; you can always visit the gym situated at the basement to shed off the extra calories.
I can’t say enough about this building that I believe will truly capture its presence. Sharing photographs may do more justice. However nothing really comes close to the real thing. Hopefully someday soon, this can be a place you can also call your home away from home.
