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.
