Pinterest’s weekly happy hours, hosted over the foosball table, are a great time for employees to hang out, talk about their week, and snack on some food “as a family”—and they typically involve some mean mojitos, courtesy of one of the engineers. Happy hour is also the home of a weekly Q&A session with the founders, where employees can get open answers to their questions—even the tough ones.
Foosball & Frisbee
One of the staples of the Pinterest office is the beloved foosball table in the back room, and playing foosball while brainstorming or discussing projects is even encouraged. Pinterest employees also recently started up an Ultimate Frisbee team, and they’re now gearing up to challenge some of the other start-ups in the area.
