Car shopping and information network Edmunds.com has opened a new state-of-the art headquarters at the Colorado Center in Santa Monica.
The 143,000-square-foot "EdQuarters" was designed by M+M Creative Studio with features that Edmunds.com says will set a new bar for workplace culture and amenities in Los Angeles' emerging "Silicon Beach" tech scene.
Edmunds' new 143,000-square-foot space was designed by M+M Creative Studio.
In a nod to its auto industry focus, highlights of its new office space include a 6,000-lb. installation of 1966 and 2016 Corvettes -- to commemorate the company's 50th anniversary -- set wheel-to-wheel and rotating above the reception area and a 1948 Cadillac Fleetwood re-purposed into a beer and coffee bar.
The space also includes a 32-foot custom stainless steel slide that connects the two floors, 130 feet of sliding glass panels that transform the office into an indoor/outdoor workspace and a 150 square foot outdoor projector screen to accommodate movie nights for employees and their families.
Edmunds.com Employees can also be entertained by two 600-plus gallon saltwater fish tanks that will be home to 160 fish, a frozen yogurt machine with toppings bar, other complimentary food and beverage options and a game room featuring classic video games, Foosball, and air hockey.
"As one of the founding tech companies on Silicon Beach, Edmunds is used to leading the way, and we've continued this tradition by taking a fresh and innovative approach to our new offices," Edmunds.com Chief Executive Avi Steinlauf said in a statement.
Steinlauf went on to say the new office aims to provide its more than 700 employees “a comfortable environment where they can work, create, think and play."
Edmunds states that it is committed to workplace happiness and operates a “Results-Only Work Environment,” allowing employees to set their own hours and take the time off they need, as long as they deliver results for the company. Other perks for working at Edmunds.com include TripCa$h, which reimburses each employee up to $500 in vacation expenses, and a bonus program that encourages employees to recognize each other's work.
Edmunds.com's Santa Monica "EdQuarters" is located just two miles from the beach and less than 12 miles from LAX. The office's custom automotive-themed designs and enviable amenities create a work environment unlike anything else in the Los Angeles area.
