11:30 am - 12:30 pm Site Tour B: Pandora

Winner of Crain’s Chicago Coolest Office 2016, the new Pandora offices in Prudential Plaza feature live music as the theme.  The 33,000-square foot office incorporates an unexpected twist:  a 1980s theme built around the movies and soundtracks of John Hughes’ “The Breakfast Club” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (both set in Chicago’s suburbs).
From the open floor plan to the office’s own DJ booth, Pandora’s new offices embody the brand and play an important role in employee engagement.  Gabe Tartaglia, Pandora’s Vice President of National Vertical Sales and the lead in terms of both the new office location and interior design concept, provides us with a personal tour and opportunity for Q&A.
