The Amex gold card where I got to keep the accrued points.
Sadly, no longer.

Company car where you never had to put your hand in your pocket and you didn't even have to take it to be serviced - they picked it up from my workplace!

With all my car expenses lately it's a good perk. Even with the FBT.
Cost me over $1400 to get my rego and a green slip last month. Not to mention another $600 in 'repairs' (tyres, suspension) to pass rego.

Ah the company car!

Now that I'm retired a salary would be a really good perk!

To be able to book flights and accommodation on my credit card and be re-imbursed.

Now I still book my own flights and accommodation on my own credit card but no one re-imburses me. :(

1. Completely free and unlimited mobile usage.
2. Got to keep points from CC usage. That one was a nice little earner. Now, no one gets the points. Thanks Accounts Department!

Just wish I got what the rest of the team get:

Work vehicle, phone, and a company Amex that they are allowed to join the rewards program (and none of them have :evil:).

Friend has that at his work. They work them hatdnso watch out for "dealer seconds"

Currently where I am
- lunch every day. Special lunch on Friday
- fridges stocked with food and beer
- shopping list to get stuff we want within reason
- fortnightly shoulder and neck massage
- endless summer for high performancers where you can work out of the SFO office when its winter here. Company pays

An office interstate or overseas that required my attendance.

Unlimited entertainment budget. For 10 years I worked for a very wealthy family company - they were always complaining I wasn't entertaining enough! Geez, I racked up some points with that one....

Sounds like a standard tech company. Well the endless summer is a new one. Although summer in SF is much like a winter in Sydney depending on where you are :D

Just out of curiosity what type of work do you do? You always seem to be jetting about
