This blog post is guest-written by Kathy Smith-Willman, Director of People Operations at Bazaarvoice.

We recently moved (for the eighth time in our company’s history!) to a new office — our largest ever. The plan is to continue to grow into this space and stay here awhile.

We did a lot of work planning the space to be bright, open, and have plenty of places for teammates to get together, and it’s really working out well. The new, upgraded space has prompted a lot of ad hoc meetings and hallway conversations that didn’t happen as much in our old space.

We’ve really worked to create a “home” for Bazaarvoice, and I think we’ve achieved it. Check out the photos of our new space.

Views from the new Bazaarvoice offices.Many of the offices have really gorgeous panoramic views of west Austin.

Casual meeting spaces spark conversation.The bright green adds a vibrant energy to the space.

Custom mural in the new Bazaarvoice game room.Of course, we still have room to play. The custom mural in the game room was created by local artist Josh Davies.

Coffee bar at the new Bazaarvoice office.Many of the materials used in the design were reclaimed/recycled.

    Maybe we should all go work in the forest near our office. ;) I’ll bring the sunscreen and bug spray.

    Classic! The last photo is the TRUE working environment these companies want you to forget – someone STUCK working at a miserable cube, yeah that’s real change for you. Nice try BVoice just admit it, you’r no different or innovative from the rest. (all fluff and no substance)
