What are the coolest perks you have on the job?

    I get to charge them for four hours of night work every week, in which all I have to do is press a button and occasionally glance at the screen to make sure nothing crashed.

    The lunch is pretty good too and I get to be the entire department's darling because I remind them all of their own daughters 😁

    I get in an hour before anyone else, I leave an hour before anyone else, I get to prioritise my own work (most of the time) and when you're the only fullstack dev on the team, you get to work on a lot of projects.

    I get to work in a very flexible manner, as long as I'm available online at some point in the day, I can choose to work remotely or from the office. Better than any pool table, free beer, etc.

    The last place I worked at promoted xbox games, fuzz ball, etc. In 2 years I never once saw them being used.

    Any trainings I want. Conferences. Certifications. They cover 100% of all of it :)

    Oh, and a massage chair. Friday breakfast. Parking in the city. Loads of fruits. Free coffee (apparently that's a perk! One of our clients I had to work with had a coffee machinewhere employees had to pay for coffee)

    The 6 figure salary, free food, unlimited holiday, great colleagues, unlimited training budget, unlimited hardware budget and company car are the best bits I'd say. But the 4 day working week and 50% time allowed on your own side projects is cool too.

    ...huh, what? Who woke me up? That was a nice dream...
