      No, I work in the Bay Area. Many companies offer free beer on tap here in addition to daily catered lunches.

    Better to see “free lunch” as a snack or supplement to your real food. It’s great the first few weeks, but after your favorite items start disappearing because new hires take them all or you miss the lunch bell because of a meeting, you’ll quickly realize this is just a perk to get you in the door. Don’t rely on this perk.

      New hires always be raiding the snacks. Several years ago our IT department had to issue a warning about employees coming to the office on Saturday's to clear out the snacks---because it was all on camera 🤣

    Yeah but half the time it's meh, a quarter of the time it's total garbage, and the rest is slightly above average. We also have free dinner.

    My company has free breakfast, lunch, and dinner of school cafeteria quality. However: (1) the neighborhood we work in is expensive and having food for free keeps us from noticing that our salaries aren't nearly high enough to eat out regularly here, and (2) breakfast ends 30 minutes before the work day begins and dinner begins two hours after it ends. Combine this fact with the rule that monthly salaries include up to 40 hours of overtime (we get paid time-and-a-quarter starting with the 41st hour in a month) and you can see that this "free" food is a great deal for the company.

      Please tell us where you work so we can avoid your company (nothing personal).

      Rakuten in Tokyo. They squeeze as much as they can from the employees.

      How much does Rakuten pay in Tokyo ? Is it comparable to Indeed, Amazon, Google ?
      Jan 19
    • New b37
      @saxony - AFAIK, not even close. Rakuten pays 3.6M yen per year and not much more than that even a decade or two later. Amazon-like corporate culture without the good TC. Google is better in both; not sure about Indeed. Would love to know, as it seems like there are no good paying companies here!

      @JUvY31 - sure; those machines are cheap :)

      Well, the bread at cashier is free when you buy butter for 50 cents. I just take bread and they don’t charge me.

    At 45k TC (but with free food) after almost 20 years, I'd gladly give up the food to have a salary like some of the ones I see here!
