    That really is a faux pas.

    Yah I don’t want to know I’m paying for things that are so “dot bomb” to begin with.

    Wow I took a look. I’d hate to find out I’m paying for that.

    I was working for a place that had bean bag chairs and nerf toys. It was great till they went under, so even if these guys are doing great.. the practice of juvenile amenities is still associated with the days when poorly run companies ran themselves into the ground.

    Seems a bit irresponsible doesn’t it.

    This is old school business. I’m surprised to see it still around.

    I would hope that the people are more mature at a firm that handles sensitive information. This suggests not.

    Great point, even if you want to offer really cushy things to those that work for you, the time to show that off is not at the customer check out.

    I think you also might attract lazy kids to your company. Better to get individuals interested in the job, and then disclose the beauty of working there.

    I’d worry about the staff I’m attracting!

    Hmmm. Not sure I’d want staff that came for free stuff.

    Ewe. Contradictory indeed.

    It’s fine to spoil staff, but do that privately!

    It does make me feel a little foolish as a client, that my cash should go to pancakes and yogurt for 80 or 90 people. I hoped it went to training.

    Really like this article and the previous posts. I’ve noticed on many occasion, the employment page of a company makes them look too pricey for the wrong reasons.

    This actually made me take a second look at our own employment page. Thanks!

    I find Virgin mobile to be as offensively perky about spending clients money on utter crap. I guess teens don’t mind because it’s their parents credit cards.
