Is there Free lunch in your company?

- Eargo aLo0o0Better 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.
- 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.
- @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 :)
- Not free but there are plenty of options in the cafeteria, healthy tasty and both, which I purchase.
