Boston, MA-based Grasshopper Group, a virtual phone system designed for entrepreneurs, offers employees a nice menu of fringe benefits.
Employees enjoy four weeks of paid time off, plus nine holidays per year. Summers are meant to be enjoyed at Grasshopper Group: Every Friday is a paid half day from Memorial Day to Labor Day. When employees are at work, flexible hours are the norm.
Food benefits include a $5 daily lunch allowance, free snacks, and coffee/espresso. And to burn off those calories, a Nintendo Wii room is available to add some fun entertainment to their work day.
