buzzed, B&W

Excess vs. pragmatism

I had to go to Pixar's Emeryville location last week for work. I went in, spoke with the receptionist, who then told me I had to go back to the security booth to get a magnetic badge. I saunter on out there, and while handing over my ID for collateral, I notice that in the little security booth, there's an Aeron. So, what's this say about Pixar?

  1. They have/had too much money, so everyone got $1,000 chairs?

  2. Clever HR person who understands the value of ergonomics?

  3. Some other reason?
