VMware campus all green

When Diane Greene, CEO of VMWare, envisioned a campus for the software company she co-founded, she wanted a place where it "would be easy to find each other."

Greene wanted to work where she could simply look up and locate, let's say, co-founder Ed Wang, to discuss the company's latest earning figures - which blew past Wall Street expectations. Or perhaps she needed to speak with Andrea Eubanks, a director for technical marketing.

Today, all she has to do is turn in her chair and scan her new environs, because the walls of her corner office on the second floor are made of glass. In fact, almost all the walls at VMWare's newly constructed 5-building campus in Palo Alto's Stanford Research Park are glass, offering Greene the ability to "sense how everybody is doing."

Wally Hong, director of workplace resources, said the environment allows for "casual collisions" among the company's 1,500 employees by locating lounge areas next to the snack kitchens, located in all the two-story structures.
