Indiana’s Best: 231 Feet Above Indy

With the growth of local pride and demand for “homegrown” products, there are many opportunities to experience true Hoosier culture. Whether it’s restaurants, attractions, shops or anything in between, we’ll showcase some of our favorite gems that make Indiana a great place to live and work.

On my lunch break one day, I decided to hike up 331 steps to the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument for a bird’s eye view of our great city. The elevator was an option for a minimal fee, but I decided to sweat it out.

   

Once I stopped wheezing and moaning about impending death (I can be a little dramatic), I was able to enjoy a pretty spectacular view. From 231 feet in the air, I still had to crane my neck to look up to the top of Chase Tower. I could see Salesforce’s roof-top lounge area on …

Breakfast with Twitter, YouTube and NPR

3 Lessons Learned from the Company’s Baseball Outing

Just when I thought my internship with Indiana INTERNnet could not get any more exciting after our staff luncheon at Dick’s Last Resort, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce treated the entire staff to an Indianapolis Indians Baseball game right around the corner at Victory Field. I hurried to wrap up my work for the day before the noon hour. The air in the office was electrified with excitement and the prospect of socializing. The air outside, however, was humid and warm.

After taking my seat alongside my chamber-mates, I thought back to the last time I was at Victory Field. It must have been back in 2010 while I was interning with the Human Resources Department at OneAmerica. The JW Marriott had not graced the panorama of Indy yet.  And, I was ready for my first-ever baseball game. My boss at the time bought me a foam finger and …
