Located in the rolling farmland of Verona, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison, is our headquarters, home to nearly 9,000 of our staff. Though our campus already seems large at first glance, we own much of the neighboring farmland as well–nearly 350 acres, initially bought by mistake!
After outgrowing our downtown Madison headquarters, we were looking for a new area to set up camp. Two of our staff went to Microsoft’s Red West campus in Seattle to get a sense of what was needed to house 3,000 people, the max we thought we might grow. When they came back to Madison they selected 350 acres of land that looked about the same size as Red West. It turns out that Red West is only 29 acres, but no worries; local farmers use the rest of the land to grow corn and alfalfa and raise cows and goats.
