Most underwhelming work perk


#1

Think it’s easyJet speedy boarding for me.


#2

Friday afternoon hand jobs.


#3

Suppose it’ll keep your wrists supple.


#4

access to a private garden in the middle of the square. involves a load of hassle getting the key, however, plus you look like a bit of a prick chilling in a private garden.


#5

#6

Used to have corporate passes to the botanic gardens. Felt very meh.

Although I did use it as my place to take calls from recruiters, so that was good I suppose.


#7

all-you-can-eat rice cakes


#8

Ooft.


#9

free copies of heat and grazia


#10

10% discount at a whole bunch of overpriced Cambridge bike shops. “Ooh, only £950 for a new Brompton!”


#11

Our colleagues in Andover get a “Free pet health check and a free 15 minute appointment for new patients.” at a local vets clinic down there.


#12

free work (ie safety) clothes


#13

We’ve got access to one of those websites where you can sign up and get loads of discounts.

cba, obviously.


#14

Oh yeah I get emails about that. Literally never look at it as I somehow doubt they offer discounts at boardgameguru.


#15

Oo, like helmets?


#16

hard hat, boots, goggles

get some nice carhartt type stuff every now and again which i’m not ashamed to wear outside of work too which is actually quite a decent perk i guess.


#17

Free eye tests (never had an eye test in my life so maybe this is a good perk?)


#18

get out


#19

Free tea - but it’s not Yorkshire Tea.


#20

I’d be all about those goggles too.
