Most companies don’t seem to understand that a happy worker is a productive worker. Thankfully, not every company on this planet makes it a default policy to inconvenience the people working for them as much as possible. Believe it or not, some companies actually go out of their way to accommodate their employees, and provide them with the type of working environment that will help them grow not only as professionals, but as people as well.
Some of the ‘happiest’ working environment belong to tech companies, which makes sense considering that most of them are ran by people who are still reasonably young. They understand, just as well as we do, that the old way of doing things isn’t necessarily better, and that if a company is to succeed, then they absolutely must provide a friendly working environment for the people working for them.

Seeing how AUtodesk is famous for their professional 3D animation design app, we understand why all employees are given access to seven 3D printers, a high-tech art metal shop, and a few other interesting tools in the workshop. Employees are actually given lessons on how to use the equipment and are advised to let their imagination run free when creating.
