While taking the survey just now, I noticed this in one of the questions:

This got me curious... what does a company cage look like? :)

    I belive like a cube, just with iron bars. – Johannes Kuhn Dec 19 '13 at 10:16

    Not sure if they should change it as it might invalidate existing answers.... I'd not respond to a job with a link to a company cage, but probably would if it was a company page. :D – George Duckett Dec 19 '13 at 10:27

    I dunno - there is a market for that type of thing...the Internet tells me so. – Ro-Reinstate Monic-Alsop Dec 19 '13 at 10:34

    I'm sure it was designed using freehand circles only. – Mołot Dec 19 '13 at 11:59

    @JL2210 more likely autocorrect issue which is disturbing since it means the word "cage" was used more frequently by the person writing it than "page". :D – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jun 15 at 9:49

No no no, you obviously misread this. We have a cage downstairs that we stick other companies in.
And yes, EA is in there for that whole SimCity debacle.

    Is there an entrance fee for going down there and poking EA with a pointy stick through the bars? – Time Traveling Bobby Dec 19 '13 at 11:30

    So, do you have a link to that Stack Overflow Careers Company Cage? – Joachim Sauer Dec 19 '13 at 11:31

    @TimeTravelingBobby We're pretty much doing that at all times, we have radios and Christmas music is readily available at the moment. Oh yeah, I said it. – Nick Craver Dec 19 '13 at 11:36

    Wait, do you mean you are playing christmas music like "Last Christmas" to EA? I'm sure that's covered by the Geneva convention somehow, I mean, that's inmorale and inhuman...even when it comes to EA...anyway, can we join? – Time Traveling Bobby Dec 19 '13 at 11:39
  • @JoachimSauer No one goes to the basement! However, you can see the upstairs here (there's a downtairs too, where the dev offices are, but I can't figure out how to get there at the moment :-/) – Nick Craver Dec 19 '13 at 11:41

    Oh hey I found it, here's the downstairs – Nick Craver Dec 19 '13 at 11:43

    @NickCraver: nice! But I'm somewhat worried that your upvote- and downvote storage are very close to each other! Aren't you worried about the two mixing and leading to annihilation? – Joachim Sauer Dec 19 '13 at 11:47

    @JoachimSauer nah we're not worried, as we gather more votes the chance of total annihilation is pretty much a sure thing. No sense in worrying about something you won't be around to clean up, that's our motto! – Nick Craver Dec 19 '13 at 11:52
  • Awesome, never thought to take such a virtual tour in your office! I didn't find the Cage, but I did figure where you host your IIS: i.stack.imgur.com/105WR.png BTW love the "Skeet Emulator" idea. ;) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 19 '13 at 12:02

    @ShadowWizard: Imagine saying to an intern: "The IIS is done, can you remove the platters from it?" - "...yeah, sure..." - ... - "Wait, why is our website down?!" – Time Traveling Bobby Dec 20 '13 at 15:39
  • @TimeTravelingBobby that's a stroke of genius! – Shadow The Princess Wizard Dec 20 '13 at 18:36
  • hehe, think you forgot to mark this status-completed? :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Feb 5 '15 at 20:06
