Free breakfast every day
Free Gym Membership
Private Healthcare and Yearly Check-ups
On Site GP
A company wide jackpot thing every 3 months (everyone puts money in, doubled by company)
Company Mac Pro. Iphone, Ipad etc
Pension is okay
Are these massages with a happy ending, or the plain old boring ones?
I get as many post it notes and biros as I can smuggle out the door
oh and paid
A rub n tug is extra
My house is owned by my employers and I dont have to pay for it. So thats a nice bonus especially since its just a minimum wage job.
Oh and im off with a broken arm from work at the minute which its looking like ill need surgery for and they are still going to pay me my normal pay. Otherwise id just have to work with it somehow.
What annoys me is that most people get a hefty discount on the things their company produces.
Do I get a discount on oil? Do I monkeys!
Biggest perk though is a company credit card which is only monitored by my boss and he's...both encouraging and generous when he suggest locations for corporate food and entertainment.
LUL @ 55 Broadway?
i get xeon power! dual monitors.
They make me pay for life insurance out my benefits.
I do get a car, but the budget isn't great so most decent stuff is out of reach.
Some of the many standard UK benefits:
- BUPA medical insurance
- life insurance
- disability insurance (75% of salary for the rest of your working life if you get injured and are deemed permanently unfit to work)
- 50% off gym membership (up to £500 /year)
- Annual computer subsidy (up to £300 /year)
- A cashback (quidco style) programme
- Biannual pay and bonus reviews (inflation pay rise or promotion and RSU and cash bonuses)
- Free cans of soft drinks (Coca cola, 7Up, Dr Pepper, Fanta, Irn Bru, etc)
- Free hot drinks (tea, herbal teas, as much milk as you can shake a stick at)
- Relaxed casual / smart casual dress code (currently wearing a company t-shirt and jeans)
- Relatively relaxed internet rules (do your job, don't look at anything dodgy and it's normally ok)
Additional for my office:
- Fresh coffee from a grind-on-demand coffee machine
- Free fruit box every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with a mixture of some of the following: grapes, bananas, apples, pears, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, monkey nuts, tomatoes
- Free cold buffet make-your-own-lunch every Wednesday, normally with enough spare for dinner if you wanted it
- Christmas dinner party (3 course meal plus a certain amount of drink free)
Additional for my team:
- Several all-expenses-paid business class travel trips to San Diego per year

Additional when I am in San Diego:
- On-site GP / medical center
- Several on-site work gyms
- Company store that offers company merchandise and discounted tickets to attractions
- Sometimes free baseball tickets
We have duel screens at my place but only because they are too tight to upgrade our 4:3 monitors to widescreen ones.
No grief over starting at 10 and finishing at 4, so long as you get 150 hours in within the month

Compare share purchase at discount
City wage, but the location is on the outskirts, which is ideal

Does free entry into the local lapdancer bar count ?

Yes, yes it does as it is also one of mine lol. (Not an official perk, kinda ties in with the next one)
Despite not being in the services I pretty much get military discount everywhere.
Flexible approach to hours (as long as my stuff is done)
Get to work with some amazing people and see things most wont.
Bit of international travel with options to go out abroad for a couple years further along the career chain if I want.
Cheap gym access
Few other things like ms office professional (I think) for 15 quid or something and stuff like that.

Back of the net!
Like you a games room, massages, free coffee and free home internet connection. Christmas and summer party, also the odd team outing occasionally, oh and a discounted canteen and free fresh OJ and fruit.
