It’s standard for your full-time job to provide you with some form of medical coverage, vacation time, and a retirement plan. But when it comes to ancillary in-office perks, you’re lucky if your employer is willing to pony up for stale coffee and some instant chicken noodle soup. No wonder we make a hullaballoo over the companies that focus on keeping their employees laced with delicious snacks and other perks.
