Just read an article in Times (TOI), which says that some companies here in India are now even giving movie passes, free entry to disco, laundry care for their employees, besides good salary!!! That's cool and so much fun!!
Is that true? Do you work for any such company? Mind sharing your experiences?

sounds like what all the .coms did during the .com hype of the late 1990s.
90%+ of them are no longer around while those that kept a clear head are mostly thriving...

Actually it is Pune Times, today's edition. An article by Sandhya Iyer.
Even I am surprised to read it.

I've heard of this type of stuff before, I think it was in Japan. With breakfast and laundry and gyms provided, some people thought it was an insidious way to keep the corporate nerds in the office 15 hours a day.

Hi,
When an asian gives something for free, Watch it! You may have to give up your soul in process. When a caucasian gives something for free, Keep up with the Jones.
