Free lunch for the major campuses. Free food. Free beverages. Half day off on Fridays between Memorial and Labor Day. Actual vacation days (15 minimum), not the all-you-can-take BS. The company really cares about diversity and many other PC causes.
The company cares too much about diversity and PC causes. Way too much time is spent on the weekly all-company meeting "Asakai" on these topics. It is sometimes useful and often is a total waste of time. Please I just need to know how the company is doing financially, and get back to do my work. Information is very siloized. One big reason is because everyone still spends most of their time WFH, at least on the engineering side. Oh, sure, we are all supposed to come to work 3 days a week, but this is not enforced at all. A natural consequence is the rank-and-file seldom talks to their peers and only the managers know what's going on. This is great of you are one of those people who just likes to take orders and march, but it makes a very frustrating experience if you want to have a say on what you are doing and decide whether you are doing the right thing for the company. If you have been in the company for a long time, you will be fine, because you know who to talk to and where to find stuff, but if you are new, you'd better be extra-motivated.
