In 2009 I accepted a position as a Web Developer at a medium-sized marketing agency in Toronto. The pay sucked, but we had interesting clients and a really fun team. The perks were outrageous. The company-supplied beer flowed freely and we often retired to the local pub and partied well into the night. On the company dime, of course. One year, in lieu of a Christmas party, they sent us on a weeklong ski trip in Quebec.
Those perks I loved in the beginning? By the end I saw them for what they were.
Chains on the door.
