    A free paycheck comes with your employment. That's the biggest one I remember. I think there are others, though.

      I'm here to please. In the absence of useful information, I thought you might appreciate asshattery.

      Smart asshattery is very much appreciated and enjoyed.

    Subsidised food: $2-3 breakfast, $6-12 lunch. They just added the 10% sales tax few days ago 😐.
    Some/most of the buildings get free fruits (apples, bananas, grapes, oranges etc). Drinks (non-alcoholic) are free and there are plenty of options to choose from.
    Sports fields, $800 stayfit reimbursement, $100 sports club reimbursement are some of the other perks.

      Which buildings get free fruits?

      My building does that and I have friends in other buildings that get them. Unfortunately, I don’t know how common it is. Create a post on fb group “Young Microsoft FTEs” if you feel like inquiring more.

      What do you mean by $100 sports club reimbursement? I thought $800 stay fit benefit is all we met as msft employees.

      You can opt for monthly $100 gym/sports club membership instead of $800 annual stay it benefit. You can also opt for $400 cash and not do anything fitness related with it.

      That's a really nice health reimbursement

      @DumplingDu: Gym membership is not limited to $100 per month. I’m pretty sure Pro Sports club charges north of $200 per month and if you’ve selected the gym option (instead of $800 reimbursement), Microsoft pays entire amount.
      By $100 sports club membership, I meant you can create a sports league and Microsoft will pay $100 per Microsoft FTE to the league for their expenses like equipments purchase, venue booking etc. Search on msw/bing@work/fb group for more details. I don’t have the link handy.

      Ah, I'm not one for the gym so I never paid much attention to that. That's cool about the league.

      And steal it. And stock at home. And maybe even start selling it on Amazon and eBay.

      eBay is better for company equipment

    A nasty manager to deal with for fun in office; and free early morning calls if you are lucky enough to be a DRI

    Sports fields, food trucks, and The Commons, the latter which not only has restaurants and an IT Support store, but some shops (hair salon, musical instruments store, and ski & bike, among others). The company store onsite is pretty nice and they’ve got the visitors’ center across the way. When I worked there, I loved the trails around campus - you could decompress during lunch or any time of the day. I also played softball on a team there, as they have sports leagues (soccer, too).

    - Some buildings (like 41) have game rooms, maker spaces, and jam rooms.
    - The tree houses are pretty cool.
    - Cheap package sending at the commons.
    - Soccer fields and basketball courts. You can get equipment at the commons
    - Valet parking
    - shuttles
    - some teams have snacks paid for by the admin
    - nice rooftop patio with grill in some buildings
    - some nice walking and running paths in the forest

    A stock that has nearly doubled since I joined. That’s a nice perk.

    Can someone give me some 80% discounted office 2019 keys?

    • Microsoft fpc
      Our office keys price ain't that good. But Xbox live membership can be 50% off. If you know someone they can give you a friend and family link and you can buy all the software you want subject to some cap.

    Free soda and milk. You can buy things from the company store at a price slightly over retail.
