‘Great option to have and genuinely useful. Not monitored very strongly though...’
Free food, great socials, massages, free drink the list goes on!
The best thing is the socials. The worst thing is the people at the top seem to think people would prefer free snacks and a gym membership over a good pension plan or maternity/paternity package.
It is difficult to chose the 'best benefit' received whilst working here, from free on-site massages to full health checks, to company-wide European trips, it's all great!
Massages every 6 weeks, bi-annual social events/corporate days out, healthy snacks, free drinks, flexible hours, work from home, can buy/sell holidays
Free food and snacks. All with a healthy theme. Quarterly socials and each week a chance to mix it up with "Beantime"
There are lots of great perks to working at Silverbean - the types of things you wouldn't find at most workplaces! Each Friday at the end of the day we have an hour (known as beantime) when we do fun activities as a group. Past beantimes include everything from rounders and pictionary to pub quizzes and cards against humanity! It's a lot of fun and a rewarding way to end the week. On several occasions I've ended up nearly crying with laughter, and how often can you say you do that at work?! In addition to this, we have regular visits from a massage therapist which I think is great, as office jobs are notorious for causing neck and back problems. We have regular social events too, some of which include free drinks and food etc. In the office itself, we get free healthy snacks and drinks, and a fab selection of fancy teas all free of charge. You get an extra day off for your birthday and also the boss' birthday breakfast, where a group of you with birthdays in the same month get taken out for a free breakfast somewhere nice in town. The annual leave allowance isn't as high as I've had at some other places, but when you take into account that you get an extra day for your birthday and usually a couple extra at Christmas too, it's certainly enough, and if you want more then there is also the option to buy and sell leave. Options for flexible working are available if your line manager is happy with it. Basically as long as you are hardworking and trustworthy then you'll get a lot back in return.
(+) Great benefits in terms of working culture, socials, Beantime, personal development, flexibility, quarterly massages... (-) Insurances and health plans aren't offered and you can't accrue flexi-time as you can in some organisations (mostly public sector), but it depends what your priorities are whether that bothers you. For me, the benefits we get are very attractive and I don't mind about the insurances and health plans.
The almost monthly experience/socials/events that we get free of charge. The free snacks, drinks and breakfast. The flexible working hours. The focus on my health and work life balance.
