Since launching in 2010, WeWork has become the go-to coworking space and office provider for growing startups and fledgling freelancers alike. With 165 locations worldwide, its affordable, stylish spaces are home to more than 20,000 businesses. But the crown jewel of WeWork's portfolio is the company's own headquarters in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. A dramatic staircase with three large landings is outfitted with cozy couches and lounges, connecting three floors to provide synergy among WeWork teams (not to mention the 100 other companies that share the space). A communal kitchen encourages employees to chat as they grab an espresso or gather for weekly TGIM -- thank God it's Monday -- dinners. A company that gets employees to celebrate the beginning of the workweek? Must be doing something right.
